An amazing Pastor that was the local doctor and legal mind. He knew when to make Patriotism stand with the Gospel as well as Holding the Sacred day in solemn fortitude without mincing words. He knew how to shock his congregation to action!
Fact Not Fiction:
This book is the Historical Fact that Christianity (see the link at the end) is the root of our American Heritage and a key factor in the inspiration of the Revolution. God governance is God’s governance and the Citizenry understood this. Those that were Chaplains and Clergy were not just religious mouth pieces. NO, They were warrior Patriots that spoke first the Word of God and then the musket or sword.
I am reading this book as if to my Grandchildren. I hope that parents and Grandparents would do the same. I hope and pray more that Pastors would be in these tumultuous times as the same that these Founding Clergy and Chaplains were.
Let us all learn and act according to the Blessing and examples they set for US in our Foundation.
