It was announced yesterday that Gov. Sarah Palin will be the closing speaker for Liberty University's Fall 2013 Fall Convocation series. At present, Gov. Palin is on tour for her recently released book, "Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas". Liberty University provided the following press release:
Palin will be introduced by President Jerry Falwell, Jr., who issued the following statement about her visit:
“While Governor Palin has visited Liberty's campus in the past, she has never appeared at a Liberty event. I am thrilled she will soon see why this university brings such hope to America. At Billy Graham's 95th birthday party she and I spoke of our mutual anticipation for her upcoming visit.”
Palin is a leading voice for American conservatism. She is the first woman and youngest person to be elected governor of Alaska and was the first female Republican vice presidential candidate in U.S. history. She is an internationally sought after speaker and has been a contributor to Fox News.
Her latest book, "Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas,” was recently released by HarperCollins and is currently a New York Times best-seller. Signed copies will be available during Convocation.
“This book is not about isolated trivialities. It's not really about gingerbread cookies, or stockings hung by the chimney with care, or the big fat man with the long white beard. It's not about a holiday at all,” Palin writes. “It's about that little baby wrapped in swaddling clothes, who arrived long before hope and change became political manipulations. It’s about Christ and our ability to worship Him freely. It’s about America, and what liberty truly means in our day-to-day lives.” More
