Friends, I recently traveled to Annapolis, MD, at the request of the United States Naval Academy to address their sailors on topics of spiritual and pastoral importance. While on my visit, I toured the storied city, exploring its historical and religious legacy and commenting upon relevant theological topics.

I was delighted to explore the historic downtown area, near the great Reynolds Tavern and St. Ann’s Anglican Church (where George Washington or Thomas Jefferson might have attended, were they in town).

The beautiful buildings in this area communicate an incredible attention to aesthetics, reminding us of the importance of beauty in public life. Watch the rest of my videos from my Annapolis trip here: https://www.wordonfire.org/annapolis/
