A Sermon for the Fourth of July

by Matt Frost

I think it’s fitting on this day, July 4, 2011, to post Joe’s bicentennial sermon from July 4, 1976.  It’s a great meditation on love of country for the sake of the beloved and for the sake of God’s purposes in it, and I commend it to you here:

Joseph Sittler, “Bicentennial Reflections,” July 4, 1976

n.b.: This isn’t a fresh transfer of the original on our good equipment, since I don’t have the tape to hand here at home.  It comes from our testing rig, and has been noise-filtered to make the non-decoded Dolby B go away.  But for all that, it’s quite good, if a little choppy in places.
