FROM THE PEN OF THE BISHOP
We will never forget 9/11! On September 11, 2001, America’s very freedom came under attack in a series of acts of terrorism taking the lives of thousands at the World Trade Center in New York City, in a grassy field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon. It has been 15 years and we are still a strong and great Nation. Let us honor the memory of those who lost their lives and pray for their families, the individuals that survived, and the brave men and women that continue to this day to keep our great nation safe by serving here and abroad. They give new meaning to those words written two centuries ago: “Land of the free. Home of the brave.”
As we remember that dark day, may we be encouraged to know that the Lord Jesus daily makes provision for us and that we should always pray for the safety of our nation. “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14) Saints of God, this is a season of making prayer a lifestyle in order to stand without fear during these troubling times.
