It is so important to remember what so we will never forget why!

Pray for Revival!

May 26, 2014


Memorial Day, as Americans have come to know it, began in the years immediately following the Civil War. But until World War II, most people knew it as “Decoration Day.” It was a day to decorate with flowers and flags the graves of fallen soldiers and remember those who had given, as Lincoln beautifully said, “the last full measure of devotion” to defend their nation. It was a day to remember what the honored dead had died to defend.

A century and a half has passed since Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox, effectively ending a national nightmare that filled over 625,000 American graves with dead soldiers. Since then, other international nightmares have ravaged the world and put more than 650,000 additional Americans into war graves in Europe, North Africa, the Pacific Rim, Asia, and the Middle East.

Remembering Is for the Future

Who will accept this Memorial Day challenge?!

Walking With Lambs


On this Memorial Day why not take time visiting a nursing home resident? Did you know that more than 60% of residents will not receive a single visitor this year? While it is good and right to remember the sacrifices of those who have given their lives for our freedom, it is urgent to remember those whom the world has forgotten.

Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for thejoyoftheLord is your strength.”   Nehemiah 8:10
