U. S. Capitol Building = 19th Century Megachurch?

Thanks to Joyce Bruner for sending me this video. I knew a few of these facts, but this is an incredibly eye opening video about how things have changed in Washington politics over the last 50 or 60 years. My favorite nugget? By 1857, over 2,000 people worshipped in the Capitol each Sunday. The fact that Thomas Jefferson had the Marine Band play music for the services is pretty cool, too. Well worth watching.
