Brandon, I found your reflection very encouraging and inspiring. Sometimes it can seem like the media has been swallowed up by whatever it is…political correctness? Fear? Willful ignorance? It is encouraging to read your words and know that someone like you is in that “neighborhood” and that you are inhabiting a bit of a young King David role. That is how you appeared in my imagination and reminded me that even when it seems the opposition is overwhelming, when we seek Him, we will never come up short or wanting.
