This magnificent church in Barnstable, a town on the northern side of Cape Cod, dates back to the early settlers who were fond of white steep led, simple buildings of worship. As you travel up route 6A heading due East, you will find many similar churches that offer a deep sense of peace even if you are not a religious person. There is something about the test of “time”, the purity of white and the all inclusiveness of knowing that irregardless of what is going on with the world at the moment, these monuments to our own heritage as a nation offer a testimony that is almost palpable as you drive, bike, fly or walk by–allowing one to drift back in time and believe once again that we live in one of the greatest civilizations the world has ever known. The Constitution of the United States breathes again a sigh of relief as you come to understand that all men are created equal and that hope is never, ever lost as long as Faith is remembered as represented by the little white steep led church.
