A 19-year-old Christian pizza delivery driver says he has forgiven the attacker who stabbed and carjacked him outside of an emergency room while he was delivering an order.
Josh Lewis, who attends Boyce College, a Southern Baptist Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, has worked as a pizza delivery driver for Spinelli's Pizzeria for about nine months. On Sunday, Lewis was tasked with delivering a pizza to the emergency room of nearby Norton Hospital, which turned out to be not such a routine run.
A statement released by the seminary explains that a man confronted Lewis at his Jeep Cherokee and ordered that he hand over his keys. Lewis then saw that the man was wielding a knife and quickly dropped the keys and fled toward the hospital. However, the perpetrator chased down Lewis and stabbed him in the back and then took off with Lewis' SUV. more >>
