Grace is necessary to overcome anger, a Waco pastor told University students during Chapel-Forum Monday.

Chris Wommack, associate pastor at First Baptist Woodway and a University graduate, retold the story of the prodigal son with a 20th century spin.

Once, while at a hospital, Wommack counseled a young lady who had anger toward Jesus for things that had happened in her past. He used the example of the woman to represent similar struggles in lives of college students.

'He was very powerful and he really seemed sincere,' said Katie Cross, a Houston freshman.

'I thought he was very good and inspiring,' said Missy Salinas, a Houston freshman.
