GOD IN AMERICA: Judeo-Christian Values in American History
Saturday, June 27 9:00a.m.-3:30p.m.
There is ample evidence that America was founded on Judeo-Christian values. They are written in the Declaration of Independence, declared in the words of the Founding Fathers, memorialized in our National Monuments and heard in our Patriotic Music. Many State Constitutions begin with an expression of gratitude to God for the freedoms we cherish and enjoy. For over 200 years statesmen and leaders (American or not) have acknowledged the role of Providence in the life of this unique nation. This workshop will graphically present some of that evidence. You will find it entertaining, informative and uplifting.
