Quote for the Day

Diversity may be the hardest thing for a society to live with, and perhaps the most dangerous thing for a society to be without.”  ~William Sloane Coffin, Jr.

Today,  let us all be thankful to God for the many freedoms we have been given in this nation.  Let us recognize that we all worship the same deity, whatever name we use to describe God, and to remember that our personal and cultural experiences have shaped how we experience God.  And let us remember that many of the early settlers and founders of this nation suffered religious persecution.  Therefore, to prevent religious tyranny, the first amendment to the Constitution grants us freedom of religion.

Let freedom ring!
