FROM THE PASTOR’S PEN - LIBERATION
As this November begins, it does so with the usual clouds, rain, snow showers and friends heading south to avoid all of the above. It is a month full of Holidays and special events, such as the Election Day dinner, Veterans Day and of course Thanksgiving. Over this month we will here candidates spin tales at their opponents, watch infomercials, here opinions and for some, avoid the topic all together.
We seem divided as a nation and loosing the better parts of our nature.
This month also carries with it the 100 anniversary of the Armistice on November 11, 1918 when the nations involved in World War 1 finally said enough was enough. Our nation emerged the strongest from the fray due to two important points, we were a God fearing principled people and we were free.
God fearing is the point I wish to address, because to live in the physical and spiritual nature of God means to be truly free.
Europe and her empires for years played on the world stage of domination, control, colonization, bigotry and haughtiness. It was the unwanted, underfed, religious free thinkers and opportunists who boarded ships to the new world. As they did, they entered in the melting pot of traditions, ideas, cultures, faiths and practices. We experience them today and are the better for it. In every country I have ever been in I have met people who have a relative or family member living in the States and doing their best to build the American Dream. You might ask what this has to do with Liberation and our November’s newsletter.
I will answer by reminding you that we have all benefited.
