If this lighthouse had existed in 1770, warning the Hand in Hand, it might not have ï»¿run aground, depositing John Murray in New Jersey to meet Thomas Potter. And the rest, as they say, would have not been history
Of course, there would have probably been Universalists anyway, though they might have been more of a back-country affair, more identified with the Connecticut and Savannah river valleys than Boston or Philadelphia. Ot perhaps a breed of low church Episcopalian. Or yhey might have been more like Baptists in polity and theology. But since God has seen fit to keep the Universalists going this long, I’m sure there would have been some other miracle and some other apostle.
