Happy Father’s Day
Dad does his own laundry
One day a housework-challenged father decided to wash his sweatshirt.
Seconds after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to his wife,
“What setting do I use on the washing machine?”
“It depends,” she replied. “What does it say on your shirt?”
He yelled back, “DENVER BRONCOS.”

I was just wondering…What do little birdies see if they get knocked unconscious?
Why is it that when you tell a person that there are 400 billion stars in the sky he'll believe you, but if you tell him a bench is wet he has to touch it?

Bud’s History of the Hymns
June 15, 2008
‘Faith of Our Fathers’ (1849) pg. 710
Music by: Henri Frederick Hemy (1818 - 1888) Words by: Frederick William Faber (1814 - 1863)

The history of the Christian faith is a rich heritage of countless people whose faith in God was considered dearer than life itself. The three stanzas found in our hymnal are very usable for evangelical worship. These can be reinterpreted to challenge our commitment and loyalty to the gospel that our spiritual fathers often died to defend.
Faber wrote this hymn after his decision to join the Church of Rome. It first appeared in his own collection of hymns, ‘Jesus and Mary -- Catholic Hymns for Singing and Reading, 1849.’ The original was published in two forms, one for Ireland and one for England.
The faith of our fathers referred to in this hymn, however, is the faith of the martyred leaders of the Roman Catholic Church during the 16th century.
NOTE: Reflecting Faber’s Catholic roots, the original third stanza was:
Faith of our fathers, Mary’s prayers
Shall win our country back to Thee;
And through the truth that comes from God,
England shall then indeed be free.

This hymn was sung at the funeral of American president Franklin D. Roosevelt, held in the East Room of the White House in Washington, DC.
