Although it is a beautiful old church building, I was not too interested in going by since we were on a very quick trip to Philadelphia, and it didn't seem so interesting to warrant a stop. But without question it was the highlight of my few hours in this wonderfully historic and architecturally beautiful city. To sit where our founding fathers sat changed my perspective: Many of our founding fathers sought guidance from our heavenly Father in this place, and worshipped him there! Our history, in it's right context.

I would take the time to stop and visit. We, of course, sat in the pews sat in by George Washington. The staff there was quite informative and we enjoyed going back in time.

We sat in Ben Franklin, George Washington and Betsy Ross's pew. There was an informational tour that was nice, they also have a little gift shop.

A stunning building made more so by the knowledge that Washington and the other founding fathers prayed here for guidance as they labored to form a new nation and a new form of government. Beautiful and peaceful retreat in a bustling city.
