I just spoke with Pastor Jehle this afternoon and let him know that I’ve heard from many of you that you’ll be joining him on Thursday for his State House tour. (This Thursday, August 17, meet us at the Bulfinch Pole in Ashburton Park at 9:45 a.m. for the 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. tour. There is no cost, registration or dress code.)
He wanted to make sure I let you all know that this walk through the Christian history of our Commonwealth’s capital is part of a larger celebration of family throughout the weekend. There will be a variety of events on Friday and Saturday down in Plymouth as part of the Jenny Museum’s “Celebrate Family” weekend, where Christian historians like Pastor Jehle emphasize the significance of the fact that the Pilgrims first came to the shores of Massachusetts not as explorers or merchants, but as families.
Please see this flyer to learn more about this weekend’s events and how our nation was built on the family. There will be tours, patriotic music and dramatic telling of the various pilgrim, patriot and abolition family stories that made our nation what it is today.
