Ready Report August 18, 2017
President Lincoln once said, “At what point then is the approach of danger (to our nation) to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up from amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must be our author and finisher. As a nation of free men, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.” I found these words from President Lincoln to be particularly relevant after the events in Charlottesville this weekend. There is a deep divide in our nation and it often seems irreconcilable. I hope you'll join me in praying that God can help heal the deep divide that exists in our country, and that we as American people can come together to tackle the tough issues we face.
