“How to Save a Nation” by Grace Church:
For those wanting insight on how to help heal our nation during this divided time, here is a perfect message on holding our political values and valuing those who hold differing ones. So vital for us , if we want to remain a free, civil society, a place for liberty and justice FOR ALL. We are all in this together , no matter where we stand, so let’s be thankful for our blessings and our ability to love and bless the small part of the world we influence. Remember, we are ALL born for a bigger picture , a Higher Calling , a TRUE SAVIOR.

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionist, but by Christians, not on religions, but on the GOSPEL of Jesus Christ. For this VERY reason PEOPLES of OTHER FAITHS have been afforded asylum , prosperity, and FREEDOM OF WORSHIP.” -Patrick Henry
