I was at the Cruz rally Saturday, and I remember this man leading the prayer. I don’t know this pastor personally, but the fact that it happened at all deeply saddens me.
Our prayers go out to this pastor, his family, friends and all those at his church. I have the feeling God’s not quite finished with him…
