Be fed twice in body and soul, as we journey together in discussing how our mission to be hope in the world involves entering into areas of great tension, but also great need.

On Tuesday, September 9th the Holland Land Office Museum will have a dinner program at the Emmanuel Baptist Church, 190 Oak Street. The dinner is open to the public and will feature the Church’s famous Swiss Steak dinner, served family style. The dinner begins at 6:00 p.m. The price of the dinner is $9.00 per person.

After dinner, our special guest speaker will be our very own Bill Kauffman. Mr. Kauffman will be taking time out from his extremely busy book tour schedule to promote his latest book, Forgotten Founder, Drunken Prophet: The Life of Luther Martin.

Martin was a delegate from Maryland to the Constitutional Convention of 1787 in Philadelphia. He opposed a system of government where the large states would dominate the small ones. He believed a new central government would have too much power over state governments and would threaten individual rights. Not finding support for his ideas, Martin eventually walked out of the convention.

To reserve your spot at the dinner, RSVP’s are necessary. Please call or email ([email protected]) the Museum by September 3rd at 343-4727 to reserve your spot at the dinner. The book is due out in the middle of September, but we will be fortunate enough to be the first place in the United States to sell the book!
