A Special Observance by Rev. Stew Royce

Rev-Stu-01-webRev. Stew Royce, Senior Pastor, Noelridge Christian Church

President’s Day is observed on the third Monday in February to honor the leaders of our nation. Originally, this day recognized the birthday of George Washington (February 22nd) and later included honoring the achievements of Abraham Lincoln.  In more recent times, this day recognizes the efforts of all the past Presidents.

In Virginia, near the historic town of Williamsburg, is a tourist attraction called “President’s Park.” This is a museum dedicated to all those who have served as President of the United States.  An impressive exhibit includes an outdoor walking area with statues of many different Presidents, each monument between 16 to 18 feet tall!

On their promotional material, there was a trivia question that caught my attention:

“This first lady refused to move into the White House until it was equipped with two things: a Bible and a bathtub.”

(Just in case you don’t know the answer, it was Abigail Fillmore. Now here is another trivia question for you – what years did her husband serve as President?)   We know at the White House years ago, the Bible ranked up there in importance with the bathtub!

Certainly, among the U.S. President’s, Abraham Lincoln stands out in our memories. He was the 16th President, but one of the most remarkable things he did was call for a National Day of Fasting, Humiliation and Prayer. The date was April 30, 1863, and to briefly summarize his proclamation, Lincoln wrote that the nation had grown in prosperity. A problem that arose as a result of America’s unprecedented growth and success was that God had been forgotten. The final sentence of his declaration reads:

“It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.”

Just as Abraham Lincoln called for repentance, the season of Lent does the same for Christians. Every year, the purpose of observing Lent is to remind us of our dependence upon God. For a period of forty days leading to Easter, we meditate on the great truths of our faith in Jesus Christ. We reflect on the person of Jesus: His teachings, His revelation of God, His sacrifice on the Cross. We remember the awe-inspiring way in which Jesus redeems those who believe in Him. The season of Lent, like all Christian observances, is meant to deepen our relationship with Him.

Blessings, Rev. Stew
