Honoring the Fallen
Strolling through the Arlington National Cemetery, visiting the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, visiting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, viewing the World War II Memorial, or hearing Taps played all evoke a solemn and somber mood. These sights and sounds remind us of the high cost of freedom. Every year we pause to observe Memorial Day as a nation, to honor the memory of those who served and sacrificed for our nation’s freedom.
Each of us have stories or memories of loved ones that served in our nation’s military. Perhaps you heard your dad or granddad, mom or grand-mom tell stories about serving in WWII, Korea, or Vietnam. For the younger generations there was Desert Shield, Desert Storm, various Operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Whatever memories you possess let us always remember that “Freedom isn’t Free.”
On Sunday, May 29th we will have a combined service at 10:30 A. M. We will view a video that pays tribute to all those who have served in our nation’s military. We will also observe the Lord’s Supper, paying tribute to our Savior who made eternal freedom possible from the tyranny of Satan and sin’s consequences. Freedom cost Jesus His life. May our hearts be moved to gratitude for what Jesus has done for us at Calvary.
May we pay honor and tribute to all who have served and passed on. God bless our veterans and the service they provided and God bless those who are actively serving our nation, but may we never forget that Jesus is our ultimate source of freedom.
“To God be the Glory great things He hath done.”
Dr. Bill Scott
