Posted on December 2, 2008. Filed under: A Theology of Patriotism, American History |

Tuesday, December 2, 2008– I know that Thanksgiving was last week and everybody is now focused on Christmas, but I wanted to do a little bit of research on early America and went over to David Barton’s Wallbuilders site and read his article on Thanksgiving. As usual, Barton’s work is thoroughly researched and well written as well as concise. Here is the link and Wallbuilders is also on my blog roll at the bottom of the page.

How I got to Thanksgiving so late in the season is that I was looking at a book on the Declaration of Independence thinking of writing some articles on it, then thought, No, I better go back to Winthrop’s City on a Hill sermon first. Then from there I thought, No, the Mayflower Compact came first…and I saw the article on Thanksgiving. But now I am going to head back to Jamestown and the original charter from King James and see what I can find.

My goal with all this is to track the history of America from a spiritual point of view as well as from a political liberty point of view. In my files somewhere I have some papers I wrote a few years ago for the youth at our church on the symbols of America, like the Great Seal, the Motto, Star Spangled Banner, etc. I am going to search for those and see if I can bring those into the blog somehow.
