  • God asks, 'Do you trust me?'

      The 40 years leading up to the Revolutionary War was a time known as the First Great Awakening.  It was a time when the Holy Spirit moved through the 13 colonies like it did in Acts 2.  The spiritual courage and dedication to fight for freedom were forged.  One of its greatest preachers was George Whitfield, who also had a good friend, Ben Franklin.  A delightful story is told by Franklin, who was listening to Whitfield preach, and knew the appeal for an offering to support the orphanage in Georgia would come at the end of the sermon.

    “Did ya’ lose a bet, did ye?”
