“Church is the Conscience of the State”

On Saturday, February 23, Washington Heights Baptist Church in Dayton,Ohio hosted a one-day seminar – The Truth of America’s Founding – Your Heritage & Mine.  Amanda Kwast and Barbara Burkard pulled together this event in three short weeks and nearly 30 people attended, including some high school and college age students.  As is always the case with IOTC events, enthusiasm ran high as new and old truths were revealed.  Some grandparents brought their teenage grandchildren.  Lots of questions were asked and answered as a new group was equipped to multiply the message in their spheres of influence.  Ricki Pepin led this class and believes the Martin Luther King, Jr. quote we use in this class was successfully activated:  “The church must be reminded that it is…the conscience…guide and critic of the state…”
