Speaking of Legacies

Jonathan Edwards As we all know, legacies can be both positive and negative. Yesterday was the 305th anniversary of Jonathan Edward's birth and American Minute featured his legacy as well as the one of a fellow by the name of Jukes. I have heard of these before, quite enlightening.

What sort of legacy are you leaving for your descendants?

"Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God" (2 Chronicles 5:20).

The picture is from the Library of Congress website, under Religion in 18th-Century America. The introductory sentence to the page is: "Against a prevailing view that eighteenth-century Americans had not perpetuated the first settlers' passionate commitment to their faith, scholars now identify a high level of religious energy in colonies after 1700."
