Sweet Discourse Church & State in Colonial and Revolutionary America
The Bruton Guides Ministry and the Heritage Center Committee are pleased to announce that the speaker at our Wednesday, November 14, Sweet Discourse event will be Mr. Robert Teagle, Education Director & Curator at the Foundation for Historic Christ Church in Weems, Virginia.
    Established by law and supported by taxation, the Church of England was the official religion of colonial Virginia.  Church life revolved around the parish. Mr. Teagle's presentation will trace the story of how Virginia moved from a royal colony with few dissenters and a well-established Church of England to an independent commonwealth that declared religious freedom to be a natural right of mankind.  
    Robert Teagel has been associated with the Christ Church Foundation since 2000. He earned his B.A. in History from the College of William and Mary and M.A. in American History from Virginia Tech.
    Be sure to mark your calendars for Wednesday, November 14 and join us at 6:30pm for coffee and cookies. The program will follow at 7pm. Bring your friends and neighbors, all are welcome!
