This past week, I preached in a gospel meeting for the church in Pembroke, KY. Just five miles from the church building is a relatively unknown monument in honor of Jefferson Davis, the first and only President of the Confederate States of America. This monument is located in Fairview, KY and stands 351 feet tall. Davis was elected President of the Confederate States of America from 1861 to 1865 during the time of the Civil War. At the same time, Abraham Lincoln served as President of the United States of America.
I stopped on my way to the church building Saturday afternoon and took this picture of the Jefferson Davis monument.
…That was Saturday. This is Sunday. You can imagine my surprise when we had a visiting guest worship with us at South Green the next morning. Would you believe me if I told you Abraham Lincoln worshiped with us? I didn’t think so, therefore I have included his picture as evidence. Not only did this man look like Abraham Lincoln, he stood approximately 6’8″ tall!
Wow! What are the odds? Jefferson Davis on Saturday. Abraham Lincoln on Sunday. I can hardly wait to see who I meet tomorrow!
