Bible Studies in the Pentagon on September 11
A few days ago I was reviewing our file of testimonies that our office receives from time to time. I came across an order form requesting a complete set of our Christian Worker Bible Study Series. The paper was all stained with water marks and a little difficult to read. It was mailed to us shortly after September 11, 2001, and included with the order was this note: "Sorry about the water damage; believe it or not this was recovered from my office in the Pentagon from the September, 11 attack."
It hardly seems like twelve years ago when our nation was shocked by that terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. I remember how our nation came together. Members of congress gathered on the steps of the capitol and sang God Bless America. All of the previous political bickering was forgotten (at least for the moment). Churches were well attended (at least for a couple of weeks). How soon we forget.
However, in the midst of so many changing values and views in our culture there is the unchangeable word of God to lead and guide us, whether we be an individual, a church or a nation. "The grass withers, and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever." Isaiah 40:8 NLT
