Indepence Day

So here we are celebrating the 4th of July. I use this day to reflect on the past and to wonder about the future.

The Declaration of Independence was actually signed on July 2nd. So even back in the very early days, there were delays for things to “get done.”

The declaration explicity noted several reason that “we” wanted our independence. It is worth the time to look it up and read the document. (It might make you wonder if we have come full circle.)

-Imposing taxes without our consent

– Cutting off trade with all parts of the world.

– Abolishing our most valuable laws

– Excited domestic insurrections amoungst us

Some of these things feel very recent

What do you think?

  1. My community had fireworks a day early, so I sat down with friends who saved me a front row seat at a gathering of 50 or 60 people. A local business puts them on every year, but this is the first time they had them on the 3rd instead of the 4th.

  2. Thank you for highlighting America’s birthday with these reminders. People who came here were seeking God’s help to live independently from religious persecution and build a new country unlike any other. To dismiss Him after He granted so much grace in the establishment of this country is a sobering decision that we are seeing the consequences of today.

    This Republic does indeed need to remember the reasons it was founded and to take stock of why we are where we are today on all levels.
