American Minute with Bill Federer

May 27

Twentieth-Century Fox made a motion picture in 1955 titled A Man
Called Peter, about the life of U.S. Senate Chaplain Peter Marshall,
born MAY 27, 1902.

Peter Marshall emigrated from Scotland, was ordained a Presbyterian
minister, and became a U.S. citizen in 1938.

A novel titled Christy, written by his wife, Catherine, was made into
a CBS television series.

His son, Peter Marshall, Jr., is the renowned author of such
best-selling books as: The Light and the Glory, From Sea to Shining
Sea and Sounding Forth The Trumpet, which chronicle the Providential
expansion of liberty throughout American history.

On January 13, 1947, U.S. Senate Chaplain Peter Marshall stated:

"The choice before us is plain: Christ or chaos, conviction or
compromise, discipline or disintegration. I am rather tired of
hearing about our rights...The time is come...to hear about
responsibilities...

America's future depends upon her accepting and demonstrating God's
government."

Opening a session of the 80th Congress, July 3, 1947, Peter Marshall
prayed:

"God of our Fathers...may it be ever understood that our Liberty is
under God and...to the extent that America honors Thee, wilt Thou
bless America."

He who forms mountains, and creates the wind, who declares to man what his thought is, and makes the morning darkness, who treads the high places of the earth - the Lord God of hosts is His name.
