|The Forsters’ TKC vanity plate.|
Denver, CO. October 14, 2008. When a son or daughter
gets behind the wheel of the family car with that
spanking new driver’s license, most parents are a little apprehensive.
Unexpected things can happen.
But when Challenge team leader Emmy Forster
took the wheel, she used it as one more opportunity
to spread the Gospel.
It all started at the DMV.
Instead of a vanity plate, Emmy wanted to get an
apostolic plate for the family car: TKC, the Regnum Christi
acronym for “Thy Kingdom Come!”
Jesus, Take the Wheel
When Emmy’s mom
went to the DMV to request the TKC license plate,
the lines of people parted, her number was called immediately,
and the request was fulfilled.
Then Emmy started driving. No
casualties so far. On the contrary...
After Mass one Sunday, as
they were sipping coffee and munching on doughnuts in the
parish hall, a fellow parishioner commented that he had interrupted
his prayer as he was driving into the parking lot
behind the Forster car. The source of his distraction: TKC.
As he was trying to figure out what it stood
for, he had resumed his prayer… and halfway through his
next Our Father, he had figured it out. Thy Kingdom
