BfFH: And Now a Word From .....

The Letter Blackhas finished, and La Crea will take the stage at four. Before that, though, a word from Casey Cease, offering his testimony to those in attendance at RTD.

"Life and everything Casey Cease had learned about it in his first 17 years changed in July 1995 when, after a night of drinking, the Houston-area native got in his car, drove off, and struck and killed a friend," Jimmy Patterson wrote in this article at

"As part of his sentence of five years probation, Cease also was given community-service hours. Speaking to groups of young people about the reckless decision that resulted in the taking of a life was part of his punishment. But those appearances also have given him the opportunity to talk about how God’s redemption and love have changed his life forever."

And that's what he's doing, right now, on the stage at RTD, a wonderful part of a day of music and message, fellowship and fun. It's been great for us here, at Blogging for Fair Havens, to be a part of all this.
