More Charleston Churches

Last post on our Chareston church visits from last week:

Image:  St. Philip's Episcopal Church

Images:  St. Philip's cemetery holds a signer of the Constiution (Charles Pinckney) and a signer of the Declaration of Independence (Edward Rutledge).

Image: Not far away is yet another Episcopal church with a massive spire:  St. Michael's.

Image:  Not to outdone by St. Philip's, St. Michael's cemetery has two signers of the Constitution (Charles Cotesworth Pinckney and John Rutledge)!

Image: Finally, the First (Scots) Presbyterian Church

Llew and the children were gracious (and patient) enough to let me visit all these edifices.  We were thinking of visiting the synagogue when we ran out of energy for the day.  Maybe next time.  The diversity and heritage of these houses of worship remind you that we are a nation of immigrants that thrives on religious liberty.
