July 4th Gathering at Jen and Kayla’s

In a letter to his wife Abigail just after the signing of the Declaration, John Adams declared that July 4th “will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”

July 4th falls on a Friday this year, and Kayla and Jen have generously offered to host a gathering at their place to celebrate.  They have a huge backyard where we can grill, make s’mores by the fire, and just hang out.  I think that will at least partially fulfill Adams’ prophecy.

We’ll start at 4:30PM, and fire up the grill at 6PM.  At sunset, we’ll open the Sabbath with a short devotional.

Kayla will have some veggie food on hand, and feel free to bring your favorite summer dish to share.  If you aren’t sure what to bring, you can contact kaylathom[at]gmail[dot]com so she can let you know what items are needed.  Please, please, try to get in touch with her sooner rather than later, as that will make things much easier for her!

I hope to see you all there!
