Jimmy V’s Moving Speech

February 25th 2008

One day following the Giants win over the Patriots and millions around the world viewing the highly anticipated Super Bowl commercials, I thought each of our readers might enjoy a post about a fifth grade teacher in a Christian school that asked her class to look at TV commercials and see if they could use them in some way to communicate ideas about God. Here are some of the student’s responses:
God is like Bayer Aspirin.
He works miracles. (more…)
