By far, the best thing I’ve seen come out of American Idol in a long time, which is saying something because I genuinely enjoy the show. Colton Dixon has a strong future ahead of himself. When asked at the end of his performance by Ryan Seacrest, “What was that quiet moment you were having right before your performance?” Dixon responded with a calm confidence saying he was praying to God. This was not the first time his Christianity has been on display for the millions of viewers taking in the A.I. show.

With the likes of Tebow, Lin, and now Dixon, maybe we’re moving to a place where young Christians in the most secular of industries are comfortable enough in their own skin to wear their faith on their sleeve. I hope it’s not a trend, rather, I hope it’s a new reality.

Well done, faithful servant.
