    I used to protest outside our State’s largest abortion clinic, by holding a sign that showed Jesus crying and pictures of aborted babies while singing “Jesus loves the little children” and “He is Lord … every knee shall bow….” I was occasionally threatened and ridiculed but it didn’t bother me.

This experience led me into a deeper exploration of apologetics but even Greg Koukl’s lessons and materials (and later yours) have not given me the courage to live transparently.
