The PCG in Seattle recently had a fun day visiting all the sites in Seattle that has religions and historical significance to Herbert W Armstrong.
WASHINGTON—Early on February 2, seniors, parents, teens and young children embarked on a historic tour of Seattle. Aboard a rented school bus filled to capacity, they rolled out of the Tacoma Mall to destinations that held significance in the church’s Philadelphia era, led by Herbert W. Armstrong.
The tour included important sites in Seattle, Everett and Tacoma where Mr. Armstrong worked beginning in the 1940s and into the early 1980s. Narrated with quotations of letters and advertisements written by Mr. Armstrong, the tour included photos of him at some of the locations.
“The 1940s proved to be a wonderful time in church history,” the tour brochure read, “as God guided His end-time Elijah through open doors and miracles to continue to grow His Work and to lead it on a path to reaching the largest audience possible. Fast forward to 1981, and God through Mr. Armstrong was working on trying to get the Worldwide Church of God back on track.”
They even visited a train station where HWA got on board a train. He got on a damn train and this is historically significant?????????????? WTF is wrong with these people?
Next they saw Seattle’s Great Northern Railway station, where Mr. Armstrong had boarded the Empire Builder to travel east. He visited radio station managers along the way to increase the reach of the gospel message. The station was adjacent to the Seattle Seahawks football stadium, and surrounding streets were full of cheering Super Bowl fans.
Then they ended this glorious trip traveling to a mall that was built over the location where there used to exist a theater that HWA preached in.
What can be said after this...Oy!Finally, the group wound up back at the Tacoma Mall at a doughnut shop, the former location of a theater where about 350 Worldwide Church of God members met for services in 1970 and 1978.
