What's Happening this Sunday?

In showing honor during Veteran's Day, I'm reminded of a scene in the movie Forest Gump in which Lt. Dan introduced Forrest to his wife, with his titanium legs. It brought to mind the other words he said to Forrest Gump, “I never thanked you for saving my life!”

A few months back, while visiting the Reagan library I came across Gary Sinise. He played the part of Lt. Dan in the movie “Forest Gump.” Gary was doing a book signing and promoting his Foundation which assists war veterans and their families.

Nearby was a quote from Ronald Reagan hanging on the wall, The future does not belong to the fainthearted, IT BELONGS TO THE BRAVE.” 

Whatever political party you might be affliated with, the words of Ronald Reagan ring true for all of us as we look at leaving behind a positive legacy.

"Whatever else history may say about me...I hope it will record that I appealed to your best hopes, not your worst fears, to your confidence rather than your doubts."

If you are in town be sure to come on out to church at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran. You will find your hope igntited, your fears diminished and your confidence in God's provision increased!
