President Carter was in the news last week, announcing his diagnosis of brain cancer.
I’ve struggled with how to address this sad news.
Sad, yet inspiring.
Carter’s whole life has been inspiring.
Less than a week after his announcement and cancer treatment, Carter was in church teaching Sunday school for the 689th time.
We saw Carter teach Sunday school several years ago.
Just last month, we took our daughter to meet him.
He is an inspiring Christian and humanitarian.
When I try to explain to people what it means to be Baptist, I find the simplest explanation is to say, “I’m a Jimmy Carter Baptist.”
Would that we could all be Jimmy Carter Christians.
