“I pledge allegiance to the flag of

and to the Republic for which it stands.
One nation under God, indivisible,
with liberty and justice for all.”

OUR NATION IN HISTORY

Although July 4th is celebrated as America’s official split from Britain’s rule and the beginning of the American Revolution, the actual series of events show that the process took far longer than a single day. The original resolution was introduced by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia on June 7, 1776, and called for the Continental Congress to declare the United States free from British rule. Three days later a committee headed by Thomas Jefferson was appointed to prepare an appropriate writing for the occasion.
Congress adopted the document that we know as the Declaration of Independence on July 4th although the resolution that led to the writing of the Declaration was actually approved two days earlier.
All of this had occurred with some of the delegates to the Congress not even present; New York, for example, did not even vote on the resolution until July 9th.
Even more interesting is the fact that not a single signature was appended to the Declaration on July 4th. While most of the fifty-six names were in place by early August, one signer, Thomas McKean, did not actually sign the Declaration until 1781.
Nevertheless, July 4th was the day singled out to mark the event of the United States establishing itself as a nation.
Only four American holidays are still celebrated on their proper calendar days: Halloween, Christmas, New Year’s and Independence Day. Of all the secular holidays, the Fourth of July is the only one whose celebration date resists change. Even in more provincial times, suggestions to alter the day of the festival to the preceding Saturday or the following Monday when July 4th fell on Sunday were protested.
The feeling about the sanctity of America’s Independence Day was best expressed in a quotation from the Virginia Gazette on July 18th, 1777:
“Thus may the 4th of July, that glorious and ever memorable day, be celebrated through America, by the sons of freedom, from age to age till time shall be no more. Amen and Amen.”

SANCTUARY LIGHT: The Sanctuary light is requested to burn this week July 2 – 9 by Mary Oshirak and Family in memory of Theodore Oshirak.

PICNIC: Don’t forget to sign up for the Covered Dish Picnic. The chart is in the vestibule and it is much easier to know the amount attending. Whatever you wish to contribute is your choice. This affair will be held next Sunday, July 10th in the Church Hall at 1:00 PM. Free of charge, only bring a covered dish and is opened to all parishioners and their families. Any questions contact Ron Kachinko 779-4407or Anna Magill. 6961473

THANKS: We extend our thanks to the ladies who came out to clean the church last week. Your time and effort is greatly appreciated. God Bless!

PRAYERS: Please remember in your prayers all those who cannot be with us and all the sick of the parish.

RUMMAGE SALE: The Women’s society is planning to have a Rummage Sale in the fall. If you have any items usable for this sale, please bring them to the Church or the Church Hall.
