102 years young

Great story on the front page of the Chicago Tribune about Thurmon Perry, a 102-year-old man who is a pillar of faith in his community on Chicago's west side.
He begins and ends his day with prayer, and continues to engage in meaningful work that shows God's love to the people around him. Here's a quote from the story:

"His mind is sharp, his handshake strong, his philosophy on life tough to argue with: 'If you live right, right will follow. If you live wrong, wrong will catch up to you. It's as simple as night and day.' "
Read the whole story by clicking here.

The print version ran a photo of Mr. Perry worshipping in church. Gotta love when mainstream media tells redemptive stories. Rock on, Mr. Perry!
