You can’t scare us, we are Strong and Courageous

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have?

Insurgents siege control of the U.S. Capitol, but that does not define us as a Nation

Far too much is being made of this events that occurred on Wednesday, 6 January 2021 at the U.S. Capitol. The loss of life is tragic. Ashli Babbit was killed by a Capitol Police Officer while trying to enter thru a window. She never stepped foot inside the building but was shot dead nonetheless. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was attacked by insurgents and later died from his injuries. Three others died of natural causes on the Capitol grounds. We pray for each of their families and friends. We are also in prayer for the Officer that shot Ashlie Babbit, and his/her family.

Simeon blessed them – Joseph and Mary.
