Collinsville Baptist and May 28, 2006: Lest We Forget

Memorial Day will always have a Double Ring to it for Me.
Recently I noticed where Collinsville Baptist Pastor John Morgan has brought to the folks attention the 200 year Anniversary Upcoming of the Founding of the Church. My Mom and Dad were in the Picture for the 175th Anniversary near the front row.
John Jeffers was in that picture as well.

Come back to this blog in a couple weeks as I develop some thoughts but have two links in mind for a group of phone treers there as Collinsville is historic church for sure; not only for the scenes in two documentaries shown on statewide Public television in the last 20 years.

Here are two links to consider as this blogpost takes shape

And in this Review of the First Decade of the 21st Century I conflate Collinsville with Newsweek Magazine's Jon Meacham, raised up the road in Chattanooga, and others. See the comment line of my friend John Pierce Review of the Decade.
