With all of the drama going on lately in
As most of you are aware, the House of Representatives worked through the weekend and passed the Health Care Bill that we have all been hearing about non-stop for the past year late Sunday evening. However, a portion of the weekend that was not televised was a bipartisan church service, held in Statuary Hall, on Sunday morning.
Statuary Hall was where the House of Representatives used to meet when there were fewer Members. It was also the home of the largest gathering of Christians for Sunday church services (starting in 1800 until 1857)—when DC was just beginning to develop. This past week’s service was the first to be held there in 130 years.
The service ended with Peter Marshall (Senate Chaplain) from March 21, 1947:
Proverbs 18:17 “The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.”
