80-year old Ruth Barden was entering her carport Sunday to go play the organ at her church when she was attacked by a goat. Most people would have given up, not worth it, guess I’ll watch tv instead. But dear Ruth fought off the goat and persisted in her desire to get to church by beating the goat off with her cane.
“He kept trying to head-butt me until I was able to get him off balance by pushing him down the steps with my cane,” she said. She said the goat pursued her around the car until, by the grace of God, she was able to get inside and lock the doors. “I have a hard time getting around,” Barden said. “I don’t know how I was able to get in the car that fast. I think God must have picked me up and put me there.”
For the life of me I can’t figure out why this made the news, but God bless Ruth Barden. We need more faithful saints like her in our churches, who will stop at nothing to get to church. Way to go Ruth!
