FFR8

It’s so true.  It’s also true that those who know at least a few tidbits of  information about the History of Religion in America, find that their vacation is more meaningful than it might have been otherwise.  The faith of a region, after all,  helps shape it’s personality, traditions, opinions, viewpoints, and politics.

These blogs are each presented in a ‘bullet point’ style that is designed to give you just a few pieces of information about things that you will potentially see and do on a road trip in America.

 

Either these tidbits will:

Either way, you’ll discover more about yourself and where your interests lie.
