Part I: Celebration of God & Country “I Pledge Allegiance!”


Special Guests:  “Red Skelton”, Faithful Men, and E.W. Jackson
This Weekend, April 21-23, on WAZT-TV
or Online HERE Anytime

An Amazing Dinner!

Everyone still remembers the first time they heard E.W. Jackson speak.  For many of us, it was at the outstanding Celebration of God and Country dinner on the JMU Campus six years ago.

This weekend, we will present Part I of a three-part series from that great Celebration and then air the remainder of the program over the following two weeks.  Even if you were there, you will definitely want to watch it again, either on WAZT-TV or online, and be inspired and challenged all over again – not just by Jackson but by the entire evening!

Reminder:  See note at bottom for details about this year’s dinner.  You don’t want to miss it!

Bishop E.W. Jackson

As many of you know, Jackson is the Founder and President of S.T.A.N.D:  “Staying True to America’s National Destiny”.  He is a former Marine, Harvard Law School graduate, and pastor who became so concerned about the direction of America that he decided to take a S.T.A.N.D. and run for public office, first for the U.S. Senate in 2012 and again in 2013 for Lt. Governor of Virginia.

He now travels throughout the country encouraging and mobilizing Christian patriots to help rebuild the Judeo-Christian values and Constitutional principles on which America was founded and has prospered.

The Red Skelton Pledge

But this program is not just about E.W. Jackson.  You will also be treated to a deeply moving homily by Jim Henry on the real meaning of the Pledge of Allegiance, similar to what comedian Red Skelton did nearly 50 years ago. The Valley’s own “Faithful Men” will follow in full voice with the National Anthem.

That then leads into Jackson’s electrifying introduction and a powerful challenge to reverse the moral decline of today’s culture and flawed government policies and to restore America to its Biblical foundations. It’s a message you cannot miss – and will want to share with your family and friends as well.

Valley Faith in Action

VFIA airs five times each week on WAZT-TV, beginning at 8:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday, again at 7:00 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. Sunday, and finally at Wednesday midnight.  That is on Comcast Cable Channel 13 in the central Shenandoah Valley area but varies in other locations — including on WIAV-TV at 8:00 p.m. Friday in Washington DC.

You can also watch this and other VFIA programs online HERE anytime.
