Congregation Decked Out For Bicentennial Celebration (1976)

O Beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam,
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!


Tonight, is the second Presidential debate between Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump. Someone save us from this wreckage, please.

Girls Bicentennial Celebration Pattern SimplicitySeems like a good time to file a new post under the Vintage Religion tag.

I thought this video was fun and inspiring.  It’s set to America the Beautiful and Amazing Grace and features the congregation of Bowden Church dressed up in 1776 clothes. They were celebrating our nation’s 200th birthday and they all look quite smashing! Most of them, both young and old, are totally decked out in Paul Revere and Betsy Ross giddups. Very impressive. I’m guessing this Bicentennial patterns from Simplicity came in handy.

Many of the people in this video are dead, now, and all the little Gen-Xers are not so little anymore. We’re in our late 30s to early 50s! Totally crazy how fast time flies.

Anyway, try not to get too bummed out about the debate. There is still plenty of beautiful all across America.

In case you missed it back in July, here is a fun quiz I put together for the Bicentennial Generation. Also, here’s a post featuring 20 Bicentennial photos that will give you flashbacks to 1976!
