George W. Bush, then the governor, joining with mayors and other governors throughout the country, declared June 10, 2000 to be "Jesus Day" in Texas and challenged "people to follow Christ's example by performing good works in their communities and neighborhoods." (see below) That first Jesus Day was celebrated in 450 American cities. I am sure to some it is a wonder the republic survived.
The March for Jesus originated in England in the late 1980s, and, now with the establishment of Jesus Day with the march as a centerpiece, is celebrated in more than 100 nations.
Do you remember when after some Mother's Day and Father's Day, someone asked why there wasn't a children's day? And the answer invariably was that every day is children's day? Well... shouldn't every day be Jesus Day?
