Most of this week was spent in Columbia, Missouri, where I presented lessons on Christian apologetics under the title of Evidences for Faith at the Eastside Church of Christ. A good number of students from the University of Missouri are members of the church. It was a pleasure to be with them and the rest of the church, including some former students and long-time friends.
Highway 63, leading south from Columbia to Jefferson City, is part of the Lewis and Clark Historic Trail. The National Park Service web page gives this brief statement about the Trail.
Between May 1804 and September 1806, 31 men, one woman, and a baby traveled from the plains of the Midwest to the shores of the Pacific Ocean. They called themselves the Corps of Discovery. In their search for a water route to the Pacific Ocean, they opened a window onto the west for the young United States.
On election day, having already cast an absentee ballot in Florida, I drove to Jefferson City to make a few photos. Here is one I made of the state capitol building.
