  • My words here today are spiritual in nature, but unfortunately do touch on politics, which I generally despise.
    In God We Trust is an interesting part of America’s heritage. It’s hard to believe the greatest nation on earth, founded with such spiritual values, has all but abandoned God.
    Either God is who he says he is or he is not. We can either choose to follow his words and commands or we can suffer the consequences.
