All About Roger Williams: A Presentation by John McNiff

 

Wednesday, January 30th, 6:30pm in the Community Room

A 45-minute talk about Roger Williams and his experiences in New England, and how all that still affects us to this day. His struggle for religious liberty, not tolerance, ended up forming a new basis for government. As Roger said in 1644, the foundation of civil power lies in the people.
