Surprised by Grace
It was meant to be a nice overnight stop. Beth and Casey Gwinn have a daughter who goes to Westmont and volunteered her parents' home for our group to spend the night in San Diego. But shortly after meeting Casey, we realized we needed to hear his story. San Diego City Attorney for many years, he became "called" into advocating for victims of domestic violence and abuse. Through his leadership over 40 centers have been established around the country and the world. Championed by President Bush and featured on Oprah, he has a singular commitment to stop the endless cycle of violence that begets violence. We sat in stunned silence around their fire-pit as he told us his unlikely story of being called by God to make a difference. Whew!
