POINT 27 WITH SHIELDS OF STRENGTH
I have been overwhelmed with the appreciation with which the Thin Blue Line Shields of Strength have been received by members of our specialty unit. The message of God’s word and his unconditional love has been and continues to be a proven comfort for our officers and their families. The shields have become a great talking point and comfort item to the officers that have received them and have become a moment to share God’s word in a way I simply find fascinating and rewarding.
