One Minute Speech Given in Recognition of the Guest Chaplain:

Mr. PETRI. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the Reverend Robert Rosenberg , who has just delivered the opening prayer.

Pastor Rosenberg is a resident of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, which is in my district, and has been the pastor of the Calvary Lutheran Church in Oshkosh since 1973.

He graduated from Iowa's Wartburg College and its Theological Seminary in 1965. Pastor Rosenberg is active in the community. He serves on the Board of Directors of the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Oshkosh, and is also the volunteer chaplain for the Oshkosh Police Department. He and his wife have three children.

We appreciate Pastor Rosenberg's giving the prayer today.

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Almighty God, ruler of all things and all men, You have set all things to move in harmony; You desire that men dwell in unity and love.

Cause people everywhere to respect law and justice. Where people are unjust, inhuman, and cruel, send correction. Where they are at war, send peace.

Give to those whom You have placed in the seats of honor and power the blessing of sound judgment, the skill of making wise decisions, the patience to act in due time, and the tact for being mutually helpful.

May wisdom and knowledge be the stability of our time, and our deepest trust be in You, the Lord of nations and the King of kings. Amen.
