Independence Day from The Old State House
July 2, 2021 | Craig Michaelis | |
As we look forward to celebrating Independence Day, we want to share a special video message from the Old State House in Boston, Massachusetts. On July 18, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was read for the first time from the balcony of the Old State House and has been read there every year on July 4th since then.
It is our founding principles, as so eloquently outlined in the Declaration of Independence, that we hold to and celebrate today. We reflect on the unique history that birthed this great nation and the freedom it has bestowed on generations of Americans. And we acknowledge together that it is our dependence on God that brings true independence and freedom.
We pray this weekend is a time of reflection, gratitude, and celebration as we thank God for America.
From all of us at My Faith Votes, Happy Independence Day!
