The Last Lecture

About a year and a half ago, I heard of a professor named Randy Pausch who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.¬† He was married, had 3 young children, and he was dying.¬† He gave what was called “The Last Lecture” at his school, Carnegie Mellon, and it was very inspiring.¬† It became a huge YouTube hit, he was featured on Oprah and other tv shows and I started following his blog.¬† Randy died on July 25, 2008.

While preparing for this week’s message, I remembered something that Randy said that has stuck with me for some time now…

“A real apology only has 3 parts…
I am sorry. I was wrong. What can I do to make it right?”

In case some of you would like to see Randy’s lecture, I’ve embedded it below…
