Strengths from Christ Our Savior and the Creator of ALL things.*
Saint Augustine around the 5th century:
“God without us will not; and we without God cannot.”
Martin Luther in 1529:
"I believe that I cannot by my own reason or strength believe in Jesus Christ,
my Lord, or come to Him; but the Holy Ghost has called me by the Gospel,
enlightened me with His Gifts,
sanctified and kept me in the True Faith...".

Since the tragic events of September
11, 2001, Karen and I are reminded that we need the comforting assurance
that life goes on!
When President Kennedy was slain,
one of his grieving brothers, Bobby, was quoted that "he found comfort when
he turned to the cherished Scriptures and some of the Ancient Greek writings.
I noticed on that horrible day in September 2001, CBS News Anchorman, Dan
Rather pausing from the newscast and quote certain phrase from speeches by the
Union's President, Abraham Lincoln. Afterward, Mr. Rather continued with the newscast.
Lincoln’s quotes, from the Civil War Era, strengthen Mr. Rather.
The Holy Scriptures, Hebrew and New Testaments, make use of parables that have
guided believers and non-believers for centuries. Below are some parables, poems, speeches, prayers, song lyrics, comments
on current academic understandings and a funny joke that have
"All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made."
