JeffDuncan-JohnGlenn Page-05

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jeff Duncan responded to the news of the passing of John Glenn today in a statement:

John Glenn is a giant in American history and truly is one of those rare authentic heroes we all revere. It is with a heavy heart to hear the news of his passing. He was a trailblazer for America’s space program during the Cold War as he became the first American to orbit the Earth in 1962 and, 36 years later, became the oldest man in space in 1998 at the age of 77. He also found the time to serve his country in the United States Senate, thereby capping a remarkable career of service to his nation. I was fortunate to have met the man in November 2011—he was larger than life. I pray for him and his family, but as America works to navigate the rough seas of the future, I also pray that our nation is graced with more men and women like John Glenn.

Pastor Paul B. Chandler, Jr. Is Honored for 75 Years in the Gospel Ministry PDF Print E-mail

Candlers-1

On December 7, 1941, seventeen-year old Paul B. Chandler, Jr. was on his way to Pinellas Park Presbyterian Church to preach his very first sermon at a youth rally for young people from all over Pinellas County, Florida. He had felt called to preach under the ministry of Pastor William R. Newell and had recently surrendered his life to this call to preach the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. As the winds of war were beginning to blow, Pastor E.R. Barnard, his pastor at Central Presbyterian Church, had been discussing a county-wide youth rally with his friend who was the pastor of Pinellas Park Presbyterian Church, and, upon learning of young Paul Chandler’s desire to preach, they decided to “cut him loose,” and invited him to preach at the youth rally. He was happy for this opportunity to preach for the first time. As he turned on the radio in his car, while driving to the service, he heard the news that the Japanese had bombed Pearl Harbor! With the realization heavy on his heart that the country would soon be entering into WWII and many young people would be answering the call to serve their country in the U.S. Armed Forces, he was burdened about the opportunity immediately before him as he would be preaching to those young people in those uncertain times.  He had chosen as his sermon’s text, Romans 12:1&2:  “I beseech you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”  Present at that service was his future wife, Esther Lillian Allen (Chandler). She was the one who, years later, reminded him that there were 18 young people who had surrendered their hearts to the Lord at that service. She said she was able to remember that number because he was turning 18 the week after he preached his first sermon!
