Giving Thanks for Freedom: Honor Flight Vet Speaks on July 3rd

Good Shepherd member Wayne Rausch was on a recent Honor Flight to Washington, DC.  This volunteer program flies veterans to the Capitol to visit the monument of the war in which they served.  He'll speak at the 10 a.m. service this Sunday.  Give thanks for all those who've sacrificed for our liberties - including our troops and their families today. 

Lord God Almighty, in whose Name the founders of this country won liberty for themselves and for us, and lit the torch of freedom for nations then unborn: Grant that we and all the people of this land may have grace to maintain our liberties in righteousness and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.  (Book of Common Prayer)
