Ministry Today – Serving and empowering church leaders

QUOTE: "'Under God' didn't enter the pledge until after World War II, after the oft-called Greatest Generation had proved its values. These men and women who fought overseas and sacrificed on the home front all grew up with a passion for their country but none pledged to God every morning facing the flag when they were school children. It wasn't essential to the formation of their character, evidently. When I read about civic battles today to add the name of God or a Ten Commandments to every public event or venue, I wonder: What is the desired effect to adding—or blocking—this? Do you have to say 'God' everywhere to know God? To develop good values?" —USA Today's "Faith & Reason" blogger Cathy Lynn Grossman [usatoday.com, 12/1/08]
