In 1775 John Peter Muhlenberg gave a sermon on Ecclesiastes 3:1 “For everything there is a season, a time for every matter under heaven. He finish by saying:
“In the language of the Holy Writ, there is a time for all things. There is a time to preach and a time to fight. And now is the time to fight.”
Upon that he throw off his clerical robe revealing the uniform of an officer in the Revolutionary army. That afternoon John Muhlenberg marched off at the head of 300 men the join General Washington’s troops. Where the served until the end of the war.
This happened on January 21 1716 but I didn't know that back in January or I would have done it on that day. All that to say here it is I really liked they little story.
