It is with deep appreciation I take this opportunity to write to you at this time that our Nation dedicates to honoring War Veterans.
When our Country called, you answered. While time goes by and many people seem to go on with life with little or no regard for the sacrifices of our Veterans, I want to assure you that we here at First Christian Church hold you in high esteem.
We know that we live in a world that is filled with "wars, and rumors of wars" as the Bible indicates would be the case in the last days before the return of Jesus Christ. We also know that true lasting peace will only be known when Jesus Christ establishes His millenial reign, but until then to experience peace, some have to "make the peace" through standing up to enemies of what is good and right around
the world. Isaiah 2:4
He will judge between the nations
and will settle disputes for many peoples.
They will beat their swords into plowshares
and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation,
nor will they train for war anymore.
While you served, mothers continued to kiss their children goodbye as they boarded the school bus, and as you served, fathers continued to attend their boys baseball games and girls band recitals. While you served, workers continued to go to work and couples in love continued to get married on Saturdays. While you served, we here at First Christian Church continued to gather in freedom to worship the God we love.
Thank you for all you have done for this great Country, and may God continue to richly bless you and all you set your heart to accomplish.
Pastor John Doe
