    When one lady asked for volunteers to join her at a Rivertown Mall in Grandville, Michigan, to sing "Amazing Grace," 250 people responded with RSVPs, and over 1,000 showed up at the mall. What makes this different from other "flash mobs" is that the lyrics were given out in a high-quality gospel tract form (so that anyone could join in with the singing). "Fortunately the singing at the Rivertown Mall was video-taped, and it brought tears to my eyes," says Ray Comfort, who came up with the idea. "In the clip you can see people holding the tracts as they...

    The authentic story of the redeeming power of the Christmas message is nowhere more vividly illustrated than in the incredible life of an English slaver named John Newton. He was born 300 years ago into a seafaring family in Liverpool. His mother was a godly woman whose faith gave her life meaning. She died when John was 7, and he recalled as the sweetest remembrance of childhood the soft and tender voice of his mother at prayer

    I watched the Restoring Honor Rally on CSpan. Based on their video coverage, I was under the impression only one bagpipe player was present at the event. What a great song and you need to see this from TheDailyBeck channel on YouTube if like me, all you saw was the CSpan coverage.

    This was from Glenn Beck's American Revival in Orlando on Saturday March 27, 2010. This was probably the most amazing experience of the day (and it was all amazing!). An elderly woman needed a doctor in one of the upper levels - at first we all thought the hollering were protesters, but it becomes obvious that it is something else when people start screaming "doctor." While the paramedics rush up there all 8,000 of us are just sort of sitting in silence, when Glenn starts to hum Amazing Grace ... and the crowd starts humming and softly singing with him....
  • What did Thomas Jefferson write to William Wilberforce about?

    "Amazing Grace", film | me
    This is a Vanity. If it shows up in the wrong place, would some kindly soul remove it to a better place. I have recently seen the movie "Amazing Grace", with Ioan Gruffudd, about William Wilberforce and his efforts to end British participation in the slave trade. At one point, his friend, PM Pitt, tells him that one of the reasons he's having trouble is that it is rumored that WW was corresponding with Thomas Jefferson. Is it true? Does anyone know what they were writing about? Jefferson had slaves, and WW was against it.
  • Bodega Man's Amazing Grace (Disarms thief then gives him charity after he begs for forgiveness)

    The thief was wearing a menacing mask and wielding a bat -- but to a Long Island store owner, he was simply a charity case. In an amazing act of compassion and forgiveness, bodega owner Mohammad "Mo" Sohail first disarmed a would-be assailant who came into his Shirley shop -- and then gave him $40 and a loaf of bread. Sohail said his saga -- captured on dramatic, video-surveillance footage -- began at 12:35 a.m. on May 21, when the thug entered his convenience store in Shirley. "Give me your money! Give me your money!" the man started screaming at...

    A morning endorsement from Bruce Springsteen will help Obama dominate the news cycle heading into tonight's debate. That, coupled with some new poll numbers and a newspaper endorsement, helps drag Clinton's ship down by two points to a 10.4 percent chance of winning the nomination. Obama may have E Street to thank if he ever lives on Pennsylvania Avenue. Bruce Springsteen endorsed Obama today, the first mega-celebrity to endorse since Oprah, Babs, and the gang in January. While Obama could've used the Boss' backing before New Jersey's primary on Feb. 5 (Obama lost by 10 points), today's timing actually works...

    I took a break from work this evening to enjoy a movie I have been meaning to watch since it came out a couple years ago. As is usually the case, I waited until it came out in DVD so we could rent it. The name of the movie is Amazing Grace, and it is the true story of William Wilberforce, the British Member of Parliament who spearheaded the long struggle to end the slave trade. My impressions: The movie was well written, directed, and acted, and although it was a bit slow in a couple parts, it held my...

    Because of another presidential debate tonight, I was looking around YouTube for a Ronald Reagan debate video I could post. Eventually I came upon this video of Irish Tenor Ronan Tynan singing Amazing Grace at Ronald Reagan's funeral three years ago. I remember how incredible it sounded the first time and watching and hearing it again, it remains inspiring. In fact, I think this is the BEST rendition of Amazing Grace ever performed. The first time I ever heard Ronan Tynan was several years ago. I was on the computer and in the background I could hear the television...

    Grace: How Strange the Sound Michael S. Horton As recounted in the recent film, the author of "Amazing Grace," John Newton, not only knew about grace, but every line of the famous hymn was part of his experience. Born in 1725 to a Protestant mother and a mariner father who had been educated by Spanish Jesuits, John Newton was taught by his mother to read and to memorize the Westminster Shorter Catechism by the age of four. With his mother's death and a distant and stern father, Newton became rudderless and eventually captained his own slave ship. After reading Thomas...

    Islam’s involvement in the black slave trade goes back over 14 centuries, back to its founder, Mohammed, who owned black slaves. Muslim slavers in North Africa also engaged in a red hot trade of white Christians.
