We Humble Ourselves — Turning a Nation Back to God is a patriotic concert featuring a symphony orchestra, a choral group, a drum and fife corps, and re-enactments of historical figures.
The characters include:
- Our First Fathers (the Pilgrims),
- Our Founding Fathers (George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and others), and;
- Our Uniting Fathers (Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass).
The event has the unique distinction of allowing the audience to participate in the concert by joining in the songs—and even a couple prayers—for those who want to say them.
The stage will be adjacent to an area of the park that will house tents and encampments of the historical reenactors so that visitors can experience what it must have been like for our ancestors. And the audience will be encouraged to dress in Colonial or Civil War clothing for the Event.
Everything is arranged to allow a family to attend at no cost (there’s no admission fee) or minimal cost (if they want to buy hot dogs and apple pie). And whether or not visitors choose to buy souvenirs, everyone will come away with memories that will last a lifetime. The concert is a stirring, heart-affirming presentation with a beautiful symphony and choral group, joyful hymns, patriotic sing-a-long songs and even a few delightful surprises.
“Why are we doing this?”
For the healing of our Nation and our Nation’s citizens
Yes, really. There is no hidden agenda, no politics, no secret funders, no famous speakers. The event is a grassroots effort, not sponsored by a specific Christian Church, but having the support of several.
Our goal is to bring joy, hope, and encouragement to a weary people and a struggling nation. Ultimately, we rely on the promise of God as relayed in 2 Chronicles 7:14: If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Let us rebuild our beloved City, State and Nation.
By God’s grace, we can begin the healing and renewing of our land. It starts in Dearborn, Michigan, on August 30, 2015 at 3 pm. Come and change the course of U.S. history!
