Blundo offers inspiring program at church

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

I am writing this letter to express my feelings about Ralph Blundo, the New Castle basketball coach.

He was a speaker at our church, Word of Life, recently.

I am not praising him for his wonderful season as a championship coach, but I am praising him as a perfect example of what a father, husband, coach and Godly man he is.

My husband and I were losing our faith in what we thought was happening in the city and schools. The culture seems to be losing the light of what is good and moral in our town.

After listening to this young man, we feel like he is a light in a dark place. His belief in God and what is right and wrong in today’s culture really touched our hearts.

One of the things that he says to his team really gave me hope for this city once again. It is Romans 12:2 — do not be conformed to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing and perfect will.

I am grateful to Blundo for restoring our faith in our town once again. God bless him and his family.
