Here’s a bit of truth. I have quite a lot of biblical knowledge. You can’t be a PK and easily avoid it.
So yeah, I’m studied up. I might even know what an exegesis is.
And because I know the Bible pretty well, I am better than you.
HAH! The look on your face.
No, because I know it pretty well, I know it gives high regard to two specific groups … widows and orphans.
ORPHANS! Orphans deserve every good thing we can give them, and two people who recognized this happen to be Pittsburgh Penguins.
The chaplain for the Penguins operates an orphanage in Haiti and Mike Rupp and Max Talbot went for a visit last weekend to shower the orphans with gifts and perhaps more importantly, time.
“This is something that my family and I feel is very important – to give back to countries like this,” [Rupp] said. “Hopefully someday I’ll be able to take my wife and kids with me on a trip like this. We really want to get our kids involved.”
Haiti scares me.
Jamie and Ali McMutrie have been known to say to me, “When are you coming to visit?” and I am all, “EEEEEEEEEEK.” It’s still a heartbreaking place, and I’m not sure my heart can take it. This is why people who have hearts strong enough, have my unending respect.
You want to follow Mike Rupp on twitter as he’ll be posting pictures from his trip over the next few days.
Max Talbot is on twitter too, and this is his current avatar:
So this is a story all about how the Pittsburgh Penguins continue to personify grace, class, and selflessness off the ice. Ahem.
Also, yes, I lifted that picture straight from his twitter account without his permission because I am hoping he will email me all, “Hey, you used my picture!” and I will respond, “Hey, how you doin’?”
