Quote of the day
From reader Rev. Al, a great little story:

I saw the Oak Ridge Boys several years ago in concert. It was right after they transitioned to country. They were rockin it out - but there were several old ladies who came expecting Smitty Gatlin. After about 5 songs - a little old lady walked down to the stage and stood there until the Oaks finished that song. Duane Allen knelt down and talked to the lady. Then he stood up and announced to the crowd that this sweet lady wants us to turn it down and sing some gospel songs. So - they pretended to turn it down and they sang two acappella gospel songs - Burdens are Lifted at Calvary and Life’s Railway. Afterwards - they went back to their planned agenda. It was first class. He handled that old woman with such respect and dignity.
