400-408 – Ed Tandy McGlasson, (firstname.lastname@example.org, 877-LUKE-322) former NFL lineman for the Giants, Jets, and Rams, and since 1988 the pastor of the Stadium Vineyard in Anaheim (stadiumvineyard.org, near 57 and Katella), has spoken all over the world, including many Billy Graham Crusades. And his book, The Difference a Father Makes, has sold over 200,000 copies. He and his wife Jill have been married for 28 years, and live in Orange with their five children (edtandymcglasson.com) – and no grand kids! His daughter Jessica leads worship at the church, and often accompanies Ed when he's speaking. Ed is all about helping people understand "the blessing of the Father," helping us realize that our identity as a believer is as one of the Father's "beloved." His goal is to have an "Orphans no more" (from John 14:18) sign proudly displayed above the door of every church.

458-508 – • [H/T Jim Grainger] Frank Sontag, works at KLOS on the Mark & Brian Morning show here in Los Angeles. Here's his YouTube testimony. Frank grew up playing the accordion in an Italian-Catholic family in Cleveland, they later moved to LA in 1965 when he was 10, and here he went to catholic schools growing up, finishing up at Notre Dame HS in Sherman Oaks (class of 1972). On June 17, 1984, he was rear ended by a driver going 110mph – while he was on a motorcycle. That sent him on his spiritual quest in pursuit of the meaning of life. He's been in radio for 26 years, doing everything from hosting a late night talk show for 21 years (87-09), to now being the on-air board op for Mark & Brian at 95.5 KLOS. He and Erin were married in 2004, and their son Dante is now 4. He gave his life to Christ in December 17, 2009, and as he says, "Then life really got interesting.…" Erin came to Christ in July of 2011. They attend Reality Church in Carpinteria.

628-639 – (5X) Joel Osteen with Wolf Blitzer last night on CNN.
// "When I hear Mitt Romney say that he believes that Jesus is the Son of God — that he's the Christ, raised from the dead, that he's his Savior — that's good enough for me," the pastor proclaimed, going on to say that he wants to be "inclusive" and welcoming to those who claim they accept Christ.
While Osteen did differentiate between Mormonism and "traditional Christianity," he maintains that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints adherents do, indeed, fall into the Christian realm. Despite some differences, the pastor claims that he sees Mormons "as brothers in Christ."
But Romney's faith wasn't the only thing Osteen commented on. When it comes to President Barack Obama, who has endlessly faced questions surrounding his beliefs, the mega-church pastor said that he takes the president at his word that he is a Christian.
"I believe with all my heart that he's a Christian, as he says he is," Osteen maintained. "[Obama] says he is [a Christian]. Again, I wouldn't try to push people away. That's just the opposite of what we're supposed to do…my personality is, I give people the benefit of the doubt."
