Pastor's Sermon Thoughts
Pastor: Rev. Ken Forbes, Pastor

President George H.W. Bush made a speech at Pearl Harbor on the morning of December 7, 1991, and so did Senator John McCain. I think apropos on these days after Memorial Day. They said: (this is edited): “May God bless those who have served this nation and may God Bless America, the most wondrous land on earth. We the United States have been a blessing to humanity. The world order we helped build from the ashes of World War II and that we defend to this day, has liberated more people from tyranny and poverty than ever before in history. Yes the U.S. has made mistakes in dealing with other countries. We haven’t always used our power wisely. We have abused it sometimes and we’ve been arrogant. But, as often as not, we recognized those wrongs, debated them openly and tried to do better. And the good the U.S. has done for humanity surpasses the damage caused by our errors. We have sought to make the world more stable and secure, not just for our own society, but for the entire world.

                          Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear,                                                                           but around in awareness. —James Thurber
