Last week’s election sent an already hyper-partisan country to a whole new level of dysfunction. Faithwire’s coverage has focused on healing, unifying voices to help the country heal.
Not many expected one of those voices of reason to be host of a national sports program. TNT’s Ernie Johnson, who can usually be seen covering the NBA and attempting to keep Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal in line, gave one of the best election reactions so far.
When Faithwire posted his reaction, which made plain his faith in Jesus, multiple readers recommended we follow up with Johnson’s life story.
