Addendum to My President Garfield Blog

After reading the blog I wrote on President James A. Garfield titled, “The U.S. President Who Preached Christ,” a Facebook friend, Gary Smith, sent me this wonderful fact regarding the godly one-time leader of our nation:

“When Garfield became president, he left his position as an elder in the church saying, ‘I resign the highest office in the land to become president of the United States.’”

I admire President Garfield even more now than when I wrote the blog.

If you have not read the original blog, you can do so here.

Thanks again, Gary!
