Federalist 62. Madison reminds us that the election of U.S. Senators by their respective state legislatures secured state rights or authority. In your opinion, how might a return to this vital constitutional principle become a key element in empowering a push back against federal intrusion into powers our heaven inspired Constitution clearly retained as jurisdictionally belonging to state & local governments, to families & individuals, to private businesses, churches, & charities?

Charles Wesley and the carol, “Hark the Herald Angels Sing”

Charles WesleyAmerican Minute with Bill Federer

“Hark the Herald Angels Sing” was a carol written by Charles Wesley, born DECEMBER 18, 1707, at Epworth, England. The 18th child of Rev. Samuel and Susanna Wesley, he excelled in school and came to the attention of Garret Wesley, or Wellesley, a Member of Parliament with a large fortune in Daugan, Ireland. Having no child, he offered to adopt Charles as his heir, but Charles declined.

After graduating from Oxford, Charles sailed to the colony of Georgia with his brother, John, who was the colony’s Anglican minister. Charles was secretary to the colony’s founder, General James Oglethorpe, a soldier who had previously fought the Muslims invading Serbia.

The Wesleys’ desire to minister to Indians never materialized so they returned to England where their preaching started the Great Awakening Revival. John founded the Methodist Church and Charles wrote over 6,000 hymns.

In 1753, around the time 21-year-old George Washington was fighting in the French and Indian War, Charles Wesley penned a Christmas carol, put the music of Lutheran composer Felix Mendelssohn, grandson of the notable Jewish philosopher, Moses Mendelssohn.

“Hark, the Herald Angels sing,
Glory to the new-born King,
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled.
Joyful all ye nations rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With th’ angelic host proclaim,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.”
