Been resting and praying here for the past few hours, letting my pain and sorrow go. Been feeling at peace here.
This is the Old South Church of Boston, one of the historic churches here in the city. Over 350 years old and is still making history. This is a non denominational church that accepts anyone and everyone.
Back in 1669, 28 men and 28 women broke away from Boston’s First Church to begin a church where they would dispense the waters of baptism more liberally. The founders were descendants of separatist and dissenting Pilgrims, Puritan reformers, and Bay Colony merchant adventurers. Their parents left England in the 17th century, some to escape persecution, and others to form a more prosperous life in the New World.
The founders included a butcher, a bricklayer, a brewer, a fisherman, a bookseller, a shoemaker, two ship’s captains, a tailor, two felt-makers, an apothecary, several merchants, a mason, several selectmen, a mint-master, farmers, and a schoolmaster.
