Today's service was very special at Chapel 1 here at Andrews as we commemorated Memorial Day. I played this video (highly recommend this one) during the service. It was a special honor to have Gerald Murray, the Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force read the lessons for the service, in this his last week of active duty.
Many of my regulars who attend were in uniform from past eras of the Air Force. It was truly special to remember those who have served as we meditated on those who have given their lives for their country, and those who continue to make sacrifices in today's war on terror. My text this morning was Jesus' speaking to his disciples in John 15 commanding us to love one another and teaching us that no greater love has a person than that he lay down his life for his friends.
