Hurtful comments

I was disheartened, though not completely surprised, by the recent eruptions of the lower nature of man, given voice here in Storm Lake. From what I understand — and has been confirmed by this newspaper — not only were there wholly inappropriate and offensive remarks made at our high school, but at Buena Vista University at a recent football game, as well.

Jesus grant us all a spirit marked by His spirit, as we extend His word of mercy and grace to all. We give thanks that according to our Lord’s good and gracious will, we live, work, play and worship in a town made beautiful by its multi-faceted ethnic setting, a veritable jewel in the ring of the church in this place, which He purchased with His own holy and precious blood.
