The aim of this site is to serve as a platform for presenting views that support America’s founding ideals, rooted in Judeo-Christian values, relative to issues impacting our community today.
The theme, Here I Raise My Ebenezer, is taken from1 Samuel 7:12:
“Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen, and called its name Ebenezer, saying, ‘Thus far the Lord has helped us’.”
And, that Scripture is the basis for the lyrics in the classic hymn, Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing:
“Here I raise my Ebenezer, Hither by Thy help I come”
Thus, Here I Raise My Ebenezer was selected as the theme of this publication, since it so nicely and succinctly summarizes the philosophy behind what you’ll find written here.
All articles posted on Here I Raise My Ebenezer can be found under the Home page tab. Generally, you’ll find that more lengthy articles are published weekly, with articles that are a bit more brief being published more frequently.

PLEASE NOTE: The articles published August 20, 2012 and prior were first published on Red County and/or A Few Days With Figgins. So, some of these may seem to have more of a partisan-political bent and/or not fully map to the theme of this site. However, these articles have content aligned closely enough with the philosophical basis of this publication that they seemed to merit inclusion in its archives.
