Over 40, 000 people layered in winter gear on a crisp fall evening; some huddled together for warmth as you can see their cold breath.
Each person is waving a small American flag as they stand in a sign of respect as they listen to a retired military officer sing
God Bless America.
This was the scene at Game One of this year's World Series between the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals. Amidst all of the hoopla and strategy by some in recent years of taking God out of everything that is America, herein lies a sign of hope. Can't keep a good man down, and in this case Our Heavenly Father.
Just this past week I found myself inside my bank to make a transaction, and what to my wandering ears appeared? A Christian-themed song being played in the bank. The bank was playing a Christian radio station for it's customers. This is a sign of hope.
These two events gave me hope that not all of America has abandoned God. America needs God just as much as the other countries in the world. Perhaps this is perfect timing for America, as 94 year-old world renowned Evangelist Billy Graham prepares to make his final sermon, which will be televised world-wide on November 7th. Although his message is more toward bringing America back to its knees, somehow I have the distinct feeling many throughout the world will be touched. God knows, we need it.
