Listen to the Message
 

Psalm 100
 
We are a people & a nation that has truly been blessed by God.
I'm thankful for my salvation & the mercy that God showers upon us.
"A boundless faith in God."
"One nation, under God."
"We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights . . ."
". . .with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes & our sacred Honor."
