Another Report: Congress Holds First Church Service in 130 Years

WASHINGTON — For the first time in 130 years, members of Congress gathered in Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol for a church service.

About 300 members from both sides of the aisle gathered to worship just hours before the House of Representatives voted to pass health care reform.

Rep. Randy Forbes, R-Va., organized the service and delivered a message about trusting God.

“When we look at our Founding Fathers we don’t have to ask the question ‘I wonder what would have happened if they had trusted God?” Forbes said. “They did. Our question is ‘What would have happened had they not trusted God?'”

“And the question we left them with is 100 years from today, 30 years from today what will our children be asking?” he continued. “Will they have to ask the question,’I wonder what would have happened if they had trusted God?’ or will they be able to ask the same question that we get to ask: ‘I wonder what would have happened had they not trusted God?'”

    One of the positive effects of this crisis of integrity we seem to be witnessing is the challenging questions we, the “Silent Majority”, are beginning to find our voices to ask:
    *Do I, personally, trust in God and His Son, Jesus?
    *If I trust Him, am I willing to stand bravely and thankfully for my faith and demand honesty and accountability from my government?
    *Am I ready to fight for what is good and right–in a land that seems to have lost its ability to tell the difference?

    What a wonderful thing, to know that the Capitol Building was the site of such an honorable and faith-filled action taken by those in Congress who know The Lord and are called to serve in this very difficult time.
    My prayers are with you.
