Colbert the evangelist?

Stephen Colbert, a practicing Catholic, makes a genuine Christmastime appeal to the goodness of God on his Comedy Central program.  Wish I could embed the video, but you’ll have to check it out here.


Also worth noting is this episode of Penn Gillette’s (of Penn & Teller fame) video blog about a special gift he received after a show one night. Penn, an avowed atheist, was clearly moved by an encounter with a Christian and has some interesting commentary on our willingness to speak of the hope within us. This might fall into the conversation we’ve had here relating to “gospel speech.” Perhaps a slightly different perspective, this time from an atheist. Enjoy.
