from Canadian Christianity,
When people enter the lobby of the hockey arena at Teen Ranch, a 150-acre Christian camp northwest of Toronto, the first thing they see is its Hockey Hall of Faith -- the framed pictures of 40 former and current National Hockey League players who have become born-again believers through its ministry. "It's a real testimony and it's interesting to see people going from one to another," says Teen Ranch founder and director Mel Stevens. "And when they get to Stu Grimson's picture, they say, 'The Grim Reaper? Is he a Christian?'"
