So, as Ruth Marcus tells us over at the Washington Post, the good folks at Point of Grace Church in Waukee, Iowa, are hanging donation envelopes for Mike Huckabee on the church Christmas tree. I’m sorry … what the? From Marcus’ column: WAUKEE, Iowa-Lori Hommer is threading blue ribbon through contribution envelopes to hang on […]

    Uh, Kevin, where does the story say they’re hanging donations envelopes for Mike Huckabee? Sounds to me like the envelopes are for year-end giving to Point of Grace Church. I may be wrong, but everything I read in that story suggests to me that the envelopes weren’t for Huckabee.

  • I realize I’ve just stumbled onto this inaccuracy a year late – but thought I would comment anyway. Kevin, I would recommend you get a better informant. As Lead Pastor of Point of Grace we have never and will never endorse a candidate. I realize it’s done in thousands of churches across America – but I have never been a part of it and neither has our church. The envelopes and trees you referred to were donations for single mothers in our congregation and for families whose fathers were in Teen Challenge of the Middlands. A recovery program in the Des Moines area that we firmly believe in. I heard Ruth attended one of our services – I’m surprise she never asked me for a conversation. I’m guessing she would have had much better clarity when writing her article.

    Merry Christmas (we still say that here)
