"There was another time in history when people, when the bell
tolled. And the question was whether or not they were going to hear it.
The time was during Nazi Germany with Adolf Hitler. You see he brought
crowds of clergy together to assure them that he was going to look
after the church. And one of the members, bold and courageous, Reverend
Niemand (sp?) made his way to the front and (inaudible) said "Hitler,
we are not concerned about the church. Jesus Christ will take care of
the church. We are concerned about the soul of Germany." Embarrassed
and chagrined, his peers quickly shuffled him to the back. And as they
did Adolf Hitler said, "The soul of Germany, you can leave that to me."
And they did, and because they did bombs did not only fall upon the
nation of Germany, but also upon the church and their testimony to this
very day. Let us not make that mistake folks. Let us hear the bell!
