Remember Our Heritage
Looking forward to talking at church this morning about our national motto: "In God We Trust," which has been on our coins since 1864 but was officially adopted 60 years ago this weekend by Congress and President Eisenhower.
"We claim to be a Christian nation - why should we not vindicate our character by honoring the God of Nations . . . . Our national coinage should do this. Its devices should declare our trust in God - in Him who is King of Kings and Lord of Lords." - Director James Pollock of the US Mint in Philadelphia, 1863
