Travel log Philadelphia: part II
If you've never visited Christ Church while in Philly, it's well worth the time to add it to your next trip.
Not far from the Betsy Ross house and Elfreth's Alley, Christ Church was founded in 1695.
This building was erected in 1727. It's eight original bells were brought from England in 1754 and rang proclaiming independence on July 4, 1776. They still ring today. In fact, they rang during our visit.
It made me grateful for our freedom of religion.
John 8:36: "If the Son sets you free, you are free indeed."
Let us use our freedom for God's glory and not take it for granted. Let us remember our sisters and brothers in Christ around the world who are not free to worship Christ openly. Remember your freedom and those lacking any kind of freedom the next time you hear a bell toll.
How do you remember or celebrate your freedom in Christ?
Do you feel that you use your freedom in Christ to the fullest?
What does freedom mean to you?
