God created us in his own image. We are not God; we are not even little gods. But we do have qualities we share with God. Sin ruined human nature yet, like shards of a broken mirror we can see flashes of godlike creativity and goodness in people. The human spirit, marred by sin and lost is still capable of marvelous courage.
Where EVERYONE Is Welcome!! SUNDAY SERVICE 10 AM November 10, 2013
Nora Waln, wrote a book critical of Hitler and Nazism before the Second World War broke out. There was no way to publish in Germany so she attempted to send the book out of the country for publication. The Nazis intercepted the book and she had to flee.
MESSAGE Rev. Ted Boodle
Waln rewrote the book from memory and had it published. She even sent a copy to Heinrich Himmler, the Nazi murderer. He responded by arresting seven of her friends. In 1939 Miss Waln returned to Germany and offered her life for the freedom of her friends. Himmler offered to free a whole prison if she would write a book that made Hitler out to be a good man.
WORSHIP Rev. Mark Davis
She refused. She wrote: “I am willing to forfeit my life, but not my beliefs.”
GREETERS Colleen Chapman Mike Davenport Michelle Dyer Audrey Silver Rick Smith
Miss Waln survived the war but her raw courage and her commitment to her beliefs still inspire. Freedom of conscience, freedom of speech and freedom to practice our faith are cornerstones of our freedom. Holding convictions, beliefs that we refuse to compromise can make us unpopular. Churchill once said: “You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.” We need Christians who have uncompromising beliefs. We need not be offensive, brittle or combative but we ought to believe in some nonnegotiable things. Jesus Christ inspires courage and faithfulness. We can suffer loss but we need not lose our faith or integrity.
