Inspiration Corner
By Barbara Steiner
Classic stories from American history and the Bible
BLOG: A Strange Grand Mixture
A man wandered down the streets looking and wondering. Where else could you find streets filled with people like these? He saw Native Americans wearing bright blankets and smoking clay pipes, wooden-shoed Dutchmen, hunters with six-foot-long rifles and leather jackets, Quakers in grey, slaves, and gentlemen in silk. People from all Thirteen Colonies were here in 1775 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania buying and selling. He heard Dutch, English, Scotch, Swedish, French-- too many languages and accents to sort out. Only here in America would such people mix.

BLOG: We the People
I believe that 'all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.'

BLOG: A Little Book and a War
It was January 1776 and Americans were seven months into war against Britain. Common Sense was published that month with dangerous words. At first no printer could be found to print it. The printer's penalty could be death. Yet when one person read it, another person was compelled to read it. How could anyone resist it?

BLOG: I'm surviving!
Two weeks ago I was in Galilee's hill country. I saw a crowd of people sitting outdoors on the ground and listening to a man named Jesus. His voice was easy to hear, better than the voices often in my face.
