Remember Pearl Harbor

Today marks the 67th anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, leading to the entrance of the Untied States in World War II. For several years I had the privilege of being part of a memorial service on the Sunday nearest December 7th. We held services on Ford Island and then laid a wreath on the Arizona. I was particularly struck by the fact that the Chaplain on the Arizona, I believe his name was Kirkpatrick, was among those entombed in the wreckage. Let us pray that God in his great mercy will keep us from any more Pearl Harbors or September 11s
