“-America was founded by those who came to worship God in liberty of conscience.
-The laws of our country were founded upon God’s laws given in His word
-Our money is stamped “In God We Trust”
-Our national hymn ends with “Great God Our King”
-We hold an annual day of Thanksgiving to Almighty God, observed by no other nation
-We have never carried on an unjust war for personal gain
-We have shown great acts of Christian benevolence to other nations
-The Bible was formerly read, and prayer offered, daily in all our schools
During the years of my education from about 1865 to 1885, Bible reading and prayer were as much a part of our daily program as our lessons. Now the Bible is gone from our schools, generations have grown up and are growing up who are no longer taught that God is their Creator, and that they are responsible to Him for their conduct, and that the blood of His dear Son is the only grounds for their salvation. There is no reason to think that we Americans can defy the Divine Laws and continue to exist, anymore than did the nations of old, who rejected God and perished from the face of the earth.
If we forsake God, God will forsake us.”

A mother appears to be a normal human being. She has all the physical features that all people have, but if you were a child you would know that she has at least three sets of eyes, two in front, two in back, and one on each side of her head so she can see and protect all. All are capable of seeing through wood and plaster so she can tell what is going on behind closed doors.
With bionic ears, she can hear whispers from a block away. With her many arms and hands she can prepare a meal, change a diaper, run the vacuum and hug the kids all at the same time!
With strong, fast legs she can move about the house like a speeding bullet. Her endless supply of energy can only be a God-given attribute. She is the first to rise in the morning , have breakfast ready for the “brood” as they get up, gets each child ready for school, is both barber and beautician, fashion consultant, chairman,budget director, purchasing agent, paramedic, veterinarian, interpreter, travel agent, interior decorator, and is the last to bed at night.
With a tender kiss she can heal everything from a cut finger to a broken heart. Her love is protective, tender, consistent understanding, forgiving, unchanging, unselfish, giving, contagious, comfortable and everlasting. The nearest thing we can see in this world to God’s love is a mother’s love.

One day a visitor leaned on the old fence around a farm, while he watched an old farmer plowing with a mule. After a while, the visitor said, “I don’t like to tell you how to run your business, but you could save yourself a a lot of work by saying, “Gee” and “Haw” to that mule instead of just tugging on those lines.”
The old farmer pulled a big handkerchief from his pocket and wiped his face. The he said, “Reckon your’re right, but this animal kicked me five years ago and I ain’t spoke to him since.”
The moral of the story seems obvious. A grudge is harder on the one who holds it than the one it is held against.
The apostle Paul said that we are to forgive one another if any man have a quarrel against any. Just like Christ forgave us, we are to forgive each other. (Col. 3:13)
Friend, is God can extend mercy on you for your sins, surely you can be merciful to those who offend you.

The Weatherfords will be with us all day Sunday, April 28th. This will be Lily Fern Weatherford’s last concert with us, as she is retiring from the music ministry the end of May.
Please join us to hear this wonderful family.
If you would like to know more about the Weatherfords, please visit their site at
The Weatherfords began their ministry under the direction of the group’s founder, Earl Weatherford (1925-1992) in 1944 in Long Beach California. Within a few short years they began to develop a distinctive sound which would separate them from the typical quartets of that era. Their classic RCA album entitled “In The Garden” produced by Chet Atkins and released in 1959, still stands as one of Gospel’s music’s most beloved recordings of all time.
Lily Fern Weatherford is the last of the legendary Gospel music singers who started their career in the early 1940s who is still on the road in a full time capacity doing close to 200 dates a year. She has been seen on the Homecoming videos and has received numerous awards for her commitment to the cause of Christ through the presentation of the Gospel in song. In 2000 Earl & Lily were inducted into the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame by a group of their peers. This was the first time a man and wife team were inducted together.
Steven Earl Weatherford the son of Earl & Lily Fern joined the goup full time on July 4th 1976 and the group entered the trio phase that has endured to this day.
The highest honor that the group has ever received is to have been instrumental in seeing countless men, women and children come to know the love of Jesus Christ and the “Good News” that comes from knowing Him.
A task they continue to this day.

“Let us be done with this Christ!” they said,
And they sealed the grave with care.
They left the gloom of the dark, dank tomb,
and guards were posted there.
In the morning hour ‘neath the lifted cloud
Came the women to where He lay;
No sepulchral gloom, No dark, dank tomb-
The stone had been rolled away!
The Risen Christ is our theme in life,
Our joy of an Easter Day.
He died by plan for the sake of man,
Then the stone was rolled away.
And many a man with disordered life
Has come to an Easter day,
And found the power in that joyous hour
To roll the stone away.

1. Build his spiritual power by praying for him.
2. Build his reputation by speaking well of him. He has weak and strong points. His influence will depend on which of these you stress.
3. Build his morale by encouraging him.
4. Build his pulpit power by hearing him.
5. Build his leadership by cooperating with him.
6. Build the church treasury by following God’s plan of church financing-that of tithing.
7. But the greatest thing you can do for your minister is to follow the Christ the preachers by the Holy Spirit.

“They won’t miss me!” said the mother as she repeatedly left her children for rounds of teas and parties. The devil did not “miss” the children either.
“They won’t miss me!” said the soldier as he went AWOL. But he spent 30 days in the guard house after that.
“They won’t miss me!” said the man on the assembly line, as he slipped away without permission. But that airplane crashed and killed his brother for lack of a single part.
“They won’t miss me!” said the sentry as he slipped away from duty. But the enemy surprised and massacred his comrades that very night.
“They won’t miss me!” said the church member as he shed his responsibilities in a day of crisis, and then wondered why his country gave way to softness and demoralization.

Here is a good question you should ask your self as a parent:
(Check at the end to see who made this powerful statement)
“Shall I force my children to go to church?”
“Shall I make my child go to church? Yes, and with no further discussion about the matter. Are you startled? Why? How do you answer them when they come to breakfast on Monday morning and announce to you that they are ot going to school anymore? You know! They go! How do you answer them when they come say: “I’m not going to take a bath.” They bathe!
Why all this timidity then in the realm of their spiritual guidance and growth? Going to wait and let them decide what church they will go to when old enough? You did not wait until they were old enough to decide whether they wished to remain dirty or be clean. Do you wait until they are old enough to decide if they want to take medicine when they are sick?
What will you say when they announce they do not like to go to church? That is easy to answer. Just be consistent. Tell them “In our family we all go to church and that includes you!”
The parents of America can strike a telling blow against Juvenile delinquency if our mothers and fathers will take their children to worship our Lord regularly.”
-J. Edgar Hoover
