JUST RINGING THAT BELL!
At the turn of the last century, Mrs. Juliet E. Nichols tended the Angel Island fog signal on San Francisco Bay. The bay area often has a blanket of fog that rolls in from the Pacific Ocean but on July 2, 1906 the dank mist became a foreboding shroud.
Ships heading for the bay were in danger because the mechanical striking mechanism for the fog bell had broken down and the light from the station's lantern was obscured
by the fog.
Faithful Juliet grabbed a common household hammer and repeatedly pounded the giant bell for over 20 hours. Two days later, the bell mechanism broke down again ... and in spite of a stiff arm, she pounded the bell another night!
Warning signals have saved many seamen from perishing in a watery grave and a timely warning to stop committing sin has been the means of saving many a soul from hell.
When we see a believer disobeying God's Commandments, his faith is in danger of shipwreck.
RING THE BELL! ... RING THE BELL! ... RING THE BELL! ...
It may seem like we repeatedly hammer away on the same old subject; but we are always hoping thatsomeone will hear our warning.
The next time our words sound harsh, and jar your nerves, just think of Juliet ...
