Who Do You Trust?

As Bill Tammeus points out on his web log "Faith Matters", it was on this day in 1956 that President Eisenhower signed the bill passed by Congress to make "In God We Trust" the national motto. The motto had been used earlier and was first placed on U.S. coins in the 1860s - in the midst of the Civil War. read more from "Faith Matters."

I doubt that many of us take time to notice or reflect on those words on our currency. I am led to wonder how many of us would agree with this motto, or to state the question differently, how many of us live as if we place our trust in God?
