Yesterday morning I had a nice visit to Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Lancaster, Pennsylvania where I spoke about Was America Founded as a Christian Nation?: A Historical Introduction during the Christian education hour. What a great church! The room was full and those in attendance seem to be very engaged with the subject.
Thanks to Dr. Greg Carey, the church’s “Scholar in Residence” and a New Testament professor at Lancaster Theological Seminary, for inviting me to speak. During one of our conversations I learned that the congregation was organized in 1730 and the church building was dedicated by Henry Melchior Muhlenberg, the most important American Lutheran of the eighteenth-century.
