As a person who has never served in the military I have in the past felt less patriotic since I have never formally defended our country. But in modern day I have come to the realization that we as civilians all have the ability to be patriots. We all have the opportunity to be patriots. We all have the opportunity to support our country and defend it against enemies or detractors.
Hi Fellow Pastors! Valentines Day is a day filled with romantic love. But what about those people in your church that don’t have a romantic love? When I was young I would watch my mom on Valentines Day. A day that should have been happy for her, was instead sad. My mom was a single mom and days like Valentines Day were very lonely for her. My mom was just a normal single mom, but I knew that Valentines Day was still hard. Even though she typically tried to have a smile on her face, I could tell. I could feel her sadness.
What does your church do for the single mom's throughout the year?This is a challenging question. Even for me. I ask it to you then I think to myself, are we doing enough? Good single mom's are incredible people. I say good single mom's because there are some out there that don't really seem to care much for their children, but even them, even the ones that seem as if they they don't care very much for their children are often still struggling. Now, I am not going to get into all of the struggles right now, that is for a different article.
