Another successful, blessed trip to build a home, and to work on a second home, as part of the Operación Hogar program. A big thank you to St. John's UMC for providing the funds and St. Stephen's UMC for providing the labor.
This "mellow," traditional Methodist church is very busy helping the community. I enjoy playing music with them, feeding the homeless and other good works.
I'm so excited to be coming back to the Lovely Solid Grounds at St. Stephen's United Methodist Church This Saturday May 26th for another concert! I'll be playing music from my new CD as well as my previous releases & music is family friendly so please join us! :-) www.jillcohn.com

A NOTE FROM PASTOR JESSE:

Veterans Day

On this day (November 11) in 1918, the worst war in the history of mankind up to that time came to an end. The guns went silent in World War I. The silence, unfortunately, did not last as long as the world hoped. Twenty years later came World War II. Today, as we remember those who died in the war that was to “make the world safe for democracy,” we might give some thought as to how we can make democracy safe for the world.

Appropriately today, we honor those who have served the cause of freedom in the ward we remember more recently—World War I and II, Korea, Vietnam, and the undeclared wars and sometimes unrecognized wars and even accidents in maintaining our peace around the world. These heroes have given the ultimate sacrifice that many of us here today have never been asked to give.

All of us have been touched by the cruel necessities of war; some of us are numbed by the loss: A spouse, brother or sister, or friend. Perhaps some of you have suffered loss yourself in serving your country. Particularly, we thank you, men and women seated among us who have served on the battlefields alongside those fallen comrades.

So, we pause to remember those who were called upon to put their lives on the line for their country. We think of those who died in the service of our country. Let us remember not only those who died, but those who lived; for the giving of one’s life is, as Abraham Lincoln said, “the last full measure of devotion....” Those who came home from the wars also deserve not merely the grateful thanks, but also the salute of their fellow countrymen.

Perhaps the greatest honor we can pay our veterans, living and dead, is best expressed in another quotation from that most eloquent of American presidents, Abraham Lincoln: “It is for us, the living….to be dedicated here to the unfinished work that they have thus far so nobly advanced….that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.”

Lincoln spoke those words on November 19, 1863. For some reason, November is a particular month of remembrance, the time when we give thanks as a people, when we commemorate the end of the First World War, when we go to the polls to exercise the rights in defense of which so many veterans have worn the uniform, carried the flag, fought the good fight. But behind every veteran in the front lines there stood an anxious, gallant and sacrificing family at home. Veterans have never been a separate entity here, perhaps because so many of us are veterans. In paying tribute to our veterans, we are in fact paying tribute to the great heritage that we all share.

Today, “God Bless America” is so well-known as a sort of semi-official national anthem, that it may come as a surprise to you to learn that the song was 22 years old before it was heard in public. Irving Berlin wrote it during World War I, but it was not sung in public until this day in 1939, when Kate Smith introduced it on a radio broadcast. As you may recall, the last line of the song refers to our land as “home, sweet home.” Today I propose that we examine what we can do to keep our land that way.
[Leonard and Thelma Spinrad, Speakers Lifetime Library (Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice Hall, 1979) 56, 248].

Allow me to conclude with these lyrics from “God Bless the USA” by Lee Greenwood:

"From the lakes of Minnesota
To the hills of Tennessee
Across the plains of Texas
From sea to shining sea
From Detroit down to Houston
And New York to L.A.
Well, there's pride in every American heart
And it's time we stand and say"

"That I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I'd gladly stand up
Next to you and defend her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land (love this land)
God bless the USA"

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Jesse
