What I'm looking for in tonight's debate: humility. Proverbs 3:7 - "Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil."
I really believe it is only by humility and seeking healing from God's hand that our nation will recover.
So tonight, after attending the Pumpkin Festival in French Lick (our church has a booth. Stop by if you are in town!), Amanda and I will cuddle on the couch and watch the debate. (I'm so romantic! lol)
Plus, today I came across a funny post from Bryan Allain about the debates. Bryan was troubled by the candidates lack of respect for the time rules in the 2008 debates. Here are some of his suggestions for helping the candidates "respect" the rules. I think this would add a lot to the debates!! (You can read the entire list here.)
3. The Orchestra: You know how award shows will cut off long-winded acceptance speeches with music that gets louder and louder every second? Let’s do the same thing at debates. Let’s hire an orchestra to sit next to the stage and start playing in ever-increasing volume as the candidates blow through their time limits.
