Today some friends and I went on a tour of the State Capitol Building in Harrisburg led by Abby Abildness who has a ministry called Healing Tree International. I had heard of her before and the work she was doing at Hershey Medical Center and that she’d written a book (which I’m now going to have to get!). So I borrowed the intern camera from Global on Friday and charged up the batteries, but had a hard time getting any of my SD cards to work in it this morning and ate up some battery power trying to solve that. In the end, I was able to get some video from the tour but the battery died right near the end (I was planning on going back anyway!). The Capitol is probably the most beautiful one of all the state capitols. In fact, when President Theodore Roosevelt dedicated it he called the Pennsylvania Capitol “the handsomest building” he had ever seen. Violet Oakley painted most of the murals I believe over the course of 25 years! She intrigues me, and I’d like to find out more about her. We finished the tour on the second floor, seven of us with Abby and a prophet named Gary, and we prayed and made declarations and wow, God is doing something in Pennsylvania! Did you know that the Moravians laid every tile on the floor and that there are almost 400 picture tiles? There’s so much history there!
I believe Darrell Fields, who wrote The Seed of a Nation, is in the process of making a movie about William Penn’s life and the Holy Experiment. I don’t know when it’s due out, but I’m going to be first in line to see it!
