God of our fathers, known of old-
Lord of our far-flung battle line-
Beneath whose awful hand we hold
Dominion over palm and pine-
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget- lest we forget!
 
The tumult and the shouting dies-
The Captains and the Kings depart-
Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,
An humble and a contrite heart.
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget- lest we forget!
 
Far-called, our navies melt away-
On dune and headland sinks the fire-
Lo, all our pomp of yesterday
Is one with Nineveh and Tyre!
Judge of the Nations, spare us yet,
Lest we forget- lest we forget!
 
If, drunk with sight of power, we loose
Wild tongues that have not Thee in awe-
Such boasting as the Gentiles use,
Or lesser breeds without the Law-
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget- lest we forget!
 
For heathen heart that puts her trust
In reeking tube and iron shard-
All valiant dust that builds on dust,
And guarding, calls not Thee to guard,
For frantic boast and foolish word,
Thy Mercy on Thy People, Lord! Amen!
 
Rudyard Kipling
(Dec 30, 1865- Jan 17, 1936)
 
The Castle Lady, avec osculation pour tout le monde! 
 
Many waters cannot quench the flame of love
neither can the floods drown it
If a man tried to buy it with everything he owned
he couldn’t do it.

    I like your favorite quote Oli! I believe in English Francoise would have said it this way: "I have too much respect for my own liberty to not show respect for the liberty of others.

    Hi Evelyn
     
    Late last year the Quebec Government threatened to close all Christian schools in the province unless we had a government permit. This came about because of a complaint by a government school board official that our schools were not teaching evolution and sex education. This is a fallacy as we do talk about evolution and the reasons we don\’t believe in it. Sex education is taught as well but as God has ordained it. For the past year the Christian schools in Quebec have been negotiating with the Government to try and get the permits that are needed. We have not compromised our teaching or our beliefs but have augmented it in the areas our schools were lacking.  On Friday the government gave a permit to the primary grades taught by our schools (grades 1-6) but denied it for our secondary students. Letters have been sent out to all the heads of the schools to be received tomorrow Monday August 27th. We do not know what that letter contains as yet. Once received it will be discussed by the schools and our lawyers about what our options are. We also learned that Quebec is now taking steps to close all Christian schools in the province that do not have a government permit. A Mennonite school in Roxboro was warned to close our face prosecution. The Mennonite community has decided that they would rather obey the word of God in training up their children then handing them over to the government sponsored public school system which is failing miserably here in Quebec. (More students drop out than graduate.) So the community is moving out of province rather than face prosecution. http://www.canada.com/montrealgazette/news/story.html?id=8aa6f3f4-45fd-42d3-ad45-38b1106bddfc On Tuesday the secondary students and their families will know what the government has to say. If the government tells us to close down we will also have to look at alternatives. Despite what the government says we as parents have the right to teach our children in the manner we see fit. This was upheld by the supreme court of Canada in 1986 and is intrenched in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. For a government to dictate to a supposed free people how to raise their children smacks of socialism or communism.  Please pray for Quebec. For the Christian schools and our lawyers as well as the government. We desperately need your prayers! Christian freedom is being attacked and we need to take a stand. Please pass this on to as many as would pray about this.  God bless allGerry DesjardinsA Worshipper\’s Space

    Hi Gerry! It\’s good to see you on the space again and thank you for posting the prayer concern. I will personally pray and send the link for your comment to all those who I know will pray about this situation. The United States has been facing down this dilemma for many years since Madalyn Murray O\’Hare attacked the practice of prayer in our public schools and we\’re still battling these attacks to our freedoms everyday. There was a good reason why prayer has been in our public schools since the inception of our government here. Most of the earliest schools we had were taught in already established churches. The prayer was compulsory! (Ahem!)
                                                                God bless you and strengthen you through your prayers! TCL  ;  )
