Ed Dobson, retired pastor of Calvary Chapel in Grand Rapids, and Pastor Clifton Rhodes, developed a bond so strong over 20 years that they consider themselves brothers. That friendship has deepened even further as first Ed, then Clifton, developed ALS.
Two lines in particular stood out for me in this film:
Ed Dobson (6.32): In the Epistle, the verse says, “In everything give thanks,” not, “For everything give thanks.” I’m not thankful for ALS, but in the midst of it, I can be thankful.
Clifton Rhodes (7:18): My jar has got some cracks in it. Ed’s jar has some cracks in it, but the real treasure cannot be damaged.
