The Sunday Message

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.John 15:13 (NIV)

Please take a moment this weekend to say a prayer for those who died while serving in the military. Pray for their family and friends, too. We owe them so much.

Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that’s a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It’s a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it. – Pete Hegseth

Have a great week!

Topics that I am providing commentary about today include Fagg vs Rosendale, Montana Roots, 2020 Census, Thomas McInerney, Stamp Out Hunger, and One More Thing!
