John Kennedy was asked by a little boy how he became a war hero. He replied, "It was absolutely involuntary. They sank my boat." Most of my heroes of faith are people of character who have weathered grief and suffering with honesty and faith. Not "God-can't-wait-to-bless-you" faith. But the deep, rugged variety. The kind that knows what it's like to hang on by a thread. I guess they didn't seek out to be courageous believers. They're like Bilbo: the ring came to him. Then he had to choose whether to carry out his assignment. Kerri Lane, who gave her testimony Wednesday night, is one of my heroes. The words she spoke to us Wednesday night in the midst of her battle with melanoma are among the most faith-full we'll ever hear. On behalf of her two precious little girls (who make me glad to be a minister), I ask you to beg for God's against-all-medical-odds healing.
