Shocked....but impressed.

I'm so glad that I belong to a church that values its standards more than the world's. I've been "in" to basketball more lately and have watched how so many teams will suspend a player for a couple weeks or even days and then, when a critical game comes up they put them back on the court just so they can win. Here is a great example of what our church stands for and what they will not. I'm glad winning in life is more important than scoring some good shots. And I'm glad we have and keep standards that the rest of the world seems too scared to retain.
