NWE NVP VIDEO FOR JANUARY 20th - HOW TO LIVE LIFE AND LOVE IT.
Dr. Peale once wrote: "The Empire State Building, in its day, was the greatest building in New York City, and it is still a marvelous structure. Seeing it reminded me of a boy who lived far downtown in New York in devastating poverty. When his father died, frinds had to chip in to buy a cheap coffin. His mother worked ten hours a day in an umbrella factory and continued far into the night at home. He joined a dramatich society in his church and got such a thrill out of acting that he decided to try public speaking. He did so well that at the age of thirty he was elected to the New York State Assembly. They put him on the committee on banking; he had never had a bank account up to that time. He was so discouraged trying to read the bills that came before him that he couldn't understand, that he almost decided to quit.
I'm talking about Alfred E. Smith, four time Governor of New York State. He was a solid citizen who believed in the American system of freedom under God. And he realized his dream of buildning the tallest building in the world, the Empire State Building. Once I sat with him in that building and said, 'Governor, you've had a great career. Tell me about it.'
He smiled and replied, 'My mother always believed in me. She said there was something in me that God would bring out if I allowed Him to do so.'
So if you are not satisfied with your life right here and now, say to the Lord, 'Lord I thank You for making me different. And help me to be diffferent. Help me to bring out of myself the great person that is within me.' What God can make out of a person is simply astounding.
Why not join us to discover how to live life and love it. The video is about 1/2 hour long and will be shown throughout the day from 11:30am - 3:00pm. The museum exhibits and the prayer chapel will be open throughout the day.
