Zis-N-Zat From Pastor Asher

God is my conscience, Jesus lives in my heart… this blog is about what I see, what I think, what I do and how I serve God

Watching West Wing and Thinking Towards Sunday

A quote from Episode titled “Galileo V.” CJ is talking to President Bartlett

“We have at our disposal a captive audience of schoolchildren. Some of them don’t go to the blackboard or raise their hand because they think they’re going to be wrong. I think you should say to these kids, “You think you get it wrong sometimes? You should come down here and see how the big boys do it.” I think you should tell them you haven’t given up hope, and that it may turn up, but in the meantime, you want NASA to put its best people in the room, and you want them to start building Galileo VI. Some of them will laugh and most of them won’t care, but for some they might honestly see that it’s about going to the blackboard and raising your hand.”
