We have been watching Poldark recently on Sunday nights.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poldark. It’s a pretty interesting show that reveals a portion of the life & times of the people of the coastal town of Cornwell when the 18th Century moves into the 19th Century timeslot.
Poldark seems to focus on the economic & class struggles mostly but woven through that are places deep in the heart. There seems to be no significant sign of the church or Christianity so far. Poldark appears to be the struggling hero & friend of the downtrodden working class poor who mixes it up with the rich & refined at this stage.
This time in history is considered by many to be the golden age of hymns. In our struggles, it is not economics that can ultimately help us but God, the one & only God. Some things never change.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazing_Grace
- Through many dangers, toils and snares,I have already come;’Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,And grace will lead me home.
