ON WE GO! – January 3, 2018
Submitted on January 3, 2018
One of the great Christians of the twentieth century was the Reverend Dr. Peter Marshall, pastor of the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C. In 1946, Dr. Marshall was appointed as Chaplain to the United States Senate, and he remained in that position until his sudden death of a heart attack in 1949. His wife, Catherine, wrote a biography of her husband, entitled A Man Called Peter, which was later developed into a feature film.
My recent reading has included selections from a book of Prayers of Peter Marshall offered during his time as Senate Chaplain. For my first Perspective of 2018, and as nourishment for our souls, I include below the brief prayer he offered on January 10, 1947:
Happy New Year Blessings to everyone!
On We Go!
