Remembering Pearl Harbor

December 7, 1941 December 7, 1941 — the day Pearl Harbor was treacherously attacked by the Japanese — was described by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt as “a date which will live in infamy.”  It was the worst naval disaster in American history.  For four long years, American men and women served and died on the battlefields of Europe and the Pacific, fighting tyranny and eventually bringing liberty across the world.

The Christian Faith of President George H. W. Bush

December 5, 2018 George H.W. Bush — our nation’s 41st President — passed away on November 30, 2018.  We want to remember him , and particularly his faith. Significantly, when Bush ran for President in 1988, a key issue he championed in the campaign was the return of prayer in schools.  And throughout his presidency, he delivered numerous speeches on the importance of prayer, frequently quoting the Bible on prayer and pointing to it as a critical factor in the building of America.  I want to share some excerpts from some of his speeches on prayer. 41st President of the […]

By Bill McNutt December 4, 2018 All of us are molded by the people we work for, especially when we are young in our careers.  I was blessed to work for George Herbert Walker Bush on three occasions; in the Reagan-Bush White House, on the National Campaign Staff during the 1988 Presidential battle with Michael Dukakis and Texan Loyd Bentsen, and during the Presidential Transition in 1988-89.  A left handed man, who was right politically, was our fellow Texan and a great public servant. The thing I liked best about working with our 41st President and Barbara Bush was the […]

Thanksgiving Day

1621 Today, Americans gather with family and friends to celebrate a uniquely American holiday — Thanksgiving!  While there are records of days or moments of Thanksgiving in America held as far back as 1541, our modern observance is based on that held by the Pilgrims in 1621. We are blessed that historical accounts of this Pilgrim Thanksgiving celebration have been preserved for us.  For example, historian Benson Lossing recounted:  The Pilgrims at Plymouth celebrate the fruits of their labors in the autumn of 1621. “[T]he Pilgrims at Plymouth rejoiced in an abundance of food in the autumn of 1621, the […]
