Join Us This Weekend for a Special Moment of Remembrance and Pentecost Celebration
This weekend we celebrate both Memorial Day and Pentecost Sunday.
Memorial Day is a time when we come together to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. It is true that freedom is never free.
Pentecost Sunday is the celebration of the birth of the New Testament church. An accomplishment that was also paid for by the sacrifice of our Savior and the apostles.
As a house that has made both Honor and Hunger part of our core values, we have a special Sunday planned to celebrate both moments. I encourage you to join us.
I want to share with you a story I found this week that captures the essence of sacrifice and reminds us of the price of freedom.
In a small town nestled in the countryside, there lived a brave and selfless soldier named Ethan. Ethan’s unwavering commitment to safeguarding the values we hold dear inspired him to enlist in the military.
Deployed to a war-torn country, Ethan and his comrades faced numerous challenges, fighting not only for their homeland but also to protect the values of liberty and justice. One fateful day, during a dangerous mission to secure a strategic location, Ethan made the ultimate sacrifice. He laid down his life while protecting a fellow soldier, leaving behind a legacy of bravery and selflessness.
Ethan’s act of bravery inspired not only his platoon but also his hometown. The entire town shut down to pause and honor this young man, one of their own sons who gave his life for more than just a fellow soldier.
Ethan’s story is a testament to the profound sacrifice made by countless men and women who have fought for our freedom.
On this weekend we also pause to honor the fallen heroes who have given everything for the cause of liberty. Their sacrifices remind us of the profound debt we owe them and the responsibility we have to cherish and preserve the freedom they fought to protect.
The words of Winston Churchill ring true, “Never was so much owed by so many to so few.”
I look forward to seeing you Sunday. Come hungry for a fresh move of GOD!
