The late Peter Jennings described the typical story involving survivors of some sort of disaster. A reporter will ask, “How did you get through this terrible experience?" The survivor often answers, “I don’t know. I just prayed. Without God’s help, I don’t think I could have made it." Jennings said this tends to be followed by an awkward silence, after which the reporter, in not so many words, asks, “Now that’s very nice, but what really got you through this?” The awkward pause, he said, represents the gap between the way most Americans and journalists view matters of faith and religion. That gap looked like the Grand Canyon the other day as the late Jennings’ former network reported on a boating accident in Utah’s Bear Lake on the show "Good Morning America."
