May 3 National Day of Prayer

Today we’ll not be attending any particular service, but will be at a funeral for a faithful servant of God who died at 94, so I know we’ll be bathed in prayer.  Here’s what I wrote six years ago.

“Prayer Breakfast at Upper Arlington Lutheran Church this morning: Bishop John Bradosky of the North American Lutheran Church hit it out of the ball park! A fantastic review of religion in America--the role of the Great Awakening, the beliefs of the founders, how the United States form of government is different than all others, that 94% of the founding documents were based on the Bible, that clergy and pastors had a huge role throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, including the founding of such important universities as Harvard and Columbia, that "separation of church and state" was intended to protect the church from being harassed by the state, not the other way around by keeping the church out of the public square, and that the change needs to begin not in the White House, or the state house, or the court house, but in the house of God! Wow.”
