Jack Arnold -- the rest of the rest of the story

Jack Arnold was the preacher who died earlier this month in the middle of preaching about going to heaven. You've no doubt come across some of the media coverage. Now Dean W. Arnold makes some candid observations about his father in a Chattanooga Times column.

Even Paul Harvey reported the remarkable event. But perhaps he will let me go ahead and tell the rest of the story, which is far more poignant when you learn that my father was weak, flawed, and glaringly human. You don't have to be perfect to finish strong.

Maybe there's hope for the rest of us, too. Dean Arnold is a professional writer, and his talent comes through strongly in this piece. It's an article well worth reading.
