Remember Ellsworth – March 4, 2022
This is the fourteenth and final episode in Eric Ludy’s winter Daily Thunder series that dives into the unstable season of American history known as the Antebellum period (1815-1861). This particular message examines the impact of one particular character upon this unique time-period in history. Elmer Ellsworth was only twenty-three years old, but he greatly impacted the nation. Throughout the Civil War, the motto that most inspired the North in their battle to quell the secession of the South, was the phrase, “Remember Ellsworth!” We would all do well to remember Ellsworth, too.
Spiritual Lessons from Abe Lincoln's America
Presented by Eric Ludy
Abraham Lincoln lived during what was likely the darkest hour in America’s history. Though that may seem hard to believe for those of us that are alive today and witnessing the wasting away of the America we love, Antebellum America (as it has been referred to since the Civil War) was an age of great darkness, division, and violence. There are a thousand lessons that emerge out of this challenging time in our great history. But, it’s the spiritual lessons that I want to draw on for this series. How can we as Christians in a day and age, not altogether that far removed from those Antebellum days, successfully navigate through our own civil derangements and spiritual and moral meltdowns to eternally impact an anti-Christian world for the glory of Jesus Christ? Buckle your spiritual seat belts as we head back to an age when hope seemed lost and the seeds for a great Civil War were beginning to sprout with devilish petals and poisonous thorns.
