Today’s Holiday:Roger Williams Day

Today’s Holiday:
Roger Williams Day

Roger Williams was the founder of the American Baptist Church. Born in Wales, he arrived in the Massachusetts colony on this day in 1631 and soon found himself in profound disagreement with the local Puritans. He fled south to what is now called Providence and founded the Rhode Island colony. Under his leadership, the people of Rhode Island were the first to establish a Baptist congregation on American soil (in 1638) and the first to build a community based on this principle of religious liberty.: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch
