This Date in History

June 30, 1918: Churches of the Capital honored their soldier members at home and abroad. Several raised service flags, dedicated to their sons. Throughout the city pastors chose patriotic themes. Uniformed men filled many pews. At noon many pastors halted their sermons for two minutes and prayed silently with their congregations for victory and peace. In the afternoon hundreds of soldiers, sailors and marines enjoyed the social hour at many churches.St. John's church
