Almost Persuaded

Tomorrow we send out the publicity for Creating a Culture of Peace. Thanks to Gary and Nancy Barrigar, our latest sponsors!

If you have been on the fence regarding sponsoring our Creating a Culture of Peace, let me tell you brothers and sisters, we are now at the eleventh hour. This is the time to make your commitment. None of us know what the morrow brings. Do not tarry! Do not wait! A hand is being held out for you today. Are you almost persuaded? Almost? Oh, friend, accept that invitation!

Here is a good old hymn
to get those tear ducts flowing...
and that checkbook showing
your love for peace.

Almost Persuaded

And if that song doesn't do it, maybe this one will.

“Almost persuaded,” harvest is past!
“Almost persuaded,” doom comes at last!
“Almost” cannot avail;
“Almost” is but to fail!
Sad, sad, that bitter wail—
“Almost,” but lost!
