Star spangled

Thx for your insights. The 3rd vs of which you reference in the star spangled banner is not used any more. Not in any hymn book that way or sung that way. Good thing someone woke up and saw how crazy that vs was. I read the other three vs. and I’m okay

Mothers, Teachers, Women, Everyone - Listen!

The spiritual bypassing episode brought me to First Name Basis, but I’m sticking around because Jasmine has a ministry to guide and teach others. I can tell that the Lord is leading her, and I am grateful for her effort in this way.
