Divine Mercy and a Man’s Story

The first Sunday after Easter is Divine Mercy Sunday and this seems like an appropriate setting to share our next video from the 2016 Iron Sharpens Iron Conference.  Jonathan Saenz, president of Texas Values, shares his story of how other men, in their mercy, have helped him in his faith journey.  His story of God’s guidance, forgiveness, and mercy that ultimately has led him through many incredible court and public policy victories for Christian values, and also through some very dark times, including his divorce, provides a sobering but hopeful view for all of us in our times of joy and sorrow.  Thank you Jonathan for your courage in sharing your story with us and may God bless you and your organization.
