Letter: No apologies from Romney


Being a Christian is hard work, and most of us fail in our attempts. I personally have failed in almost every aspect of my life, and all those failures are my fault. I don’t think failure means we stop moving forward in what we believe. We as people and as a nation should hold onto the ideal that helped this nation become a nation. We must acknowledge our sin, learn from that sin and then experience growth. Then when we succeed, we look back to those left behind and we lift them up. We don’t despise and judge those that are lost and falling because that is not the Christian way.

If we can’t, as a nation, and as people, find a way to extend a hand of mercy and grace and humility to those around us, perhaps God might forget to extend that same hand to us when it is us who don’t deserve His grace and forgiveness and mercy.

Rev. Nathaniel Manderson
