Faith of our Fathers


5 Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. 6 Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. 7 For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for? 8 And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?
9 Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons’ sons (Deuteronomy 9:5-9)

As this Fourth of July continues to ring in the freedom, may we never waver from the Faith of our Fathers, which secured this great nation. Freedom, as they declared: When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
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, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness

Oh! Thus be it ever, when freemen
Shall stand
Between their loved home and the
War’s desolation
Blest with victrory and peace, may
The heav’n resuced land
Praise the Power that hath made
And preserved us a nation
Then conquer we must
when our cause it is just
And This be our motto:
In God is our Trust
Francis Scott Key
May we continue as One Nation under God!
Happy Independence from our foes and Dependence on God
