Today is Independence Day in the good ol’ US of A, and like many we are celebrating here with parades, games, fireworks, and family fun.
I found this video and thought you should have to suffer through it too. The Bible does say you’re supposed to weep with those who weep.
Now, the national anthem can be a very tricky song. I have sung it in public and it’s extremely nerve-wracking. When I did it, I shamelessly put the words in front of me in case I forgot them in the heat of the moment (but thankfully, the practice paid off and I didn’t need them). It all went fine, but I can’t say the same for these folks.
While we’re praying that God would bless America, maybe you can bow your heads and say a little prayer for these singers as well. God bless their little hearts…
Happy 4th of July!
Do you have a favorite Independence Day story or tradition to share? I’d love to hear it!
I believe in the value of others in this journey of life and faith, and I want to connect with other people, connect others in real ways, and connect everyone I come across to Him. I have a beautiful wife, Andrea, and four wonderful children (and we are also a foster family). I'm the lead pastor of Breakthrough Church in Juneau, AK where we get the opportunity to practice authentic community and live for a vision bigger than ourselves. I also run a website development company called Spark2Flame where I help others reach their full potential online.
