Anyway, I just love the cover!
While some of you may not have been too pleased with the election results from Tuesday, I was very excited. I believe we will be sending some new faces to Congress who will do their best to uphold the values and principles of this great nation as well as the Constitution. I am neither for Republicans or for Democrats as both parties, I believe, have become corrupt. I am, however, for America and for returning to the ideas and principles that made us great in the first place.
On June 30, 1775, Congress passed the Articles of War to govern the Continental Army. In it, Congress directed that:
It is earnestly recommended to all officers and soldiers diligently to attend Divine service; and all officers and soldiers who shall behave indecently or irreverently at any place of Divine worship shall... be brought before a Court-martial.
A congressional proclamation given by William Livingston on March 13th, 1776
The Congress. . .desirous. . . to have people of all ranks and degrees duly impressed with a solemn sense of God's superintending providence, and of their duty devoutly to rely. . . on His aid and direction. . . do earnestly recommend. . . a day of humiliation, fasting, and prayer, that we may with united hearts confess and bewail our manifold sins and transgressions and, by a sincere repentance and amendment of life, . . . and through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, obtain His pardon and forgiveness.
Can you imagine the enormous blessing God would pour out on this nation if our current Congress did the same thing?
