Jack’s Winning Words 5/10/17
“In God we trust; everyone else must cite their data.” (Protest Sign) During the Civil War it was a minister who suggested that the words, In God We Trust, be stamped on U.S. coins. In desperate times people often call out for God’s help, perhaps recalling the biblical words, “Call on me in the day of trouble, and I will answer you.” A WW 2 chaplain is quoted, “There are no atheists in foxholes.” There are different kinds of life battles. God knows; God cares. ;-) Jack
FROM ST PAUL IN ST PAUL: say hello to David when he arrives. also, do we know anything about the pastor who advocated for the "In God We Trust" motto?====JACK: Not much is known about Rev. M.R. Watkinson, except that he was from Pennsylvania and that he wrote the well-known hymn, "Shall we ever be drunkards?"
FROM BLAZING OAKS: Brought to mind the saying often posted in stores, "In God we trust; All others pay cash!" As I said to my S.S. class last week, "Not once does the Bible say, 'Worry about it!', 'Stress over it!', or 'Just figure it out!'...but over and over it says, "TRUST GOD."====JACK: Have you ever sung (heard) The Worried Man Blues, originated by the Carter family?
FROM DAZ IN COLORADO: How about ..... In God we trust, all others pay cash.====JACK: Did you know that J.C. Penny's middle name was Cash? ...and that the Penny's stores were originally called, The Golden Rule stores, because all employees were expected to treat all customers according to the Golden Rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Knowing you as I do, you already knew that.
