We thought this was a great video and the words from the pastor are very powerful. It deals with how we approach death and compares it to the death of Jesus Christ. He reminds us that we shall still live because Christ, our redeemer lives. If we have the assurance that we live for Christ, we shall live. And by knowing this, we should never be afraid of death.
Did President Obama Deliberately Omit God’s Name in Thanksgiving Address?
Reports are circulating that President Obama has omitted the mention of “God” in this years Thanksgiving address. The President has been criticized for not addressing Christians in the past in other speeches as well; yet he seemingly would adore and praise other faiths like Muslims or Jewish, etc. This speech appears to deem the same concerns from Christians.

President Obama devoted his weekly radio address to thanking U.S. service members and volunteers at shelters and soup kitchens. But it’s whom he didn’t thank that caused a stir on Twitter: God.
“We’re especially grateful for the Americans who defend our country overseas,” Obama said in his Thanksgiving Day address. “To all the service members eating Thanksgiving dinner far from your families, the American people are thinking of you today.”
But Thursday morning, Republicans and others tweeted their discontent with the reported omission of God from Obama’s address.

In our lives, finding peace in the midst of a terrible storm can sometimes be very difficult. Even though we may spend our lives professing our love and life for Jesus, we can’t always hear him. Even when we have lived our lives to encourage others, we can’t encourage ourselves. In the midst of great pain and sorrow, God sometimes is very quiet for a reason we can not comprehend.
