Washington’s Farewell Address
No Senate tradition has been more steadfastly maintained than the annual reading of President George Washington’s 1796 Farewell Address. In this letter to “Friends and Citizens,” Washington warned that the forces of geographical sectionalism, political factionalism, and interference by foreign powers in the nation’s domestic affairs threatened the stability of the Republic. He urged Americans to subordinate sectional jealousies to common national interests.
The Senate tradition began on February 22, 1862, as a morale-boosting gesture during the darkest days of the Civil War. Citizens of Philadelphia had petitioned Congress to commemorate the forthcoming 130th anniversary of Washington’s birth by reading the Address at a joint meeting of both houses.
Tennessee Senator Andrew Johnson introduced the petition in the Senate. ”In view of the perilous condition of the country,” he said, “I think the time has arrived when we should recur back to the days, the times, and the doings of Washington and the patriots of the Revolution, who founded the government under which we live.”
Two by two, members of the Senate proceeded to the House Chamber for a joint session. As they moved through Statuary Hall, they passed a display of recently captured Confederate battle flags. President Abraham Lincoln, whose son Willie had died two days earlier, did not attend. But members of his cabinet, the Supreme Court, and high-ranking military officers in full uniform packed the chamber to hear Secretary of the Senate John W. Forney read the Address.
Early in 1888—the centennial year of the Constitution’s ratification—the Senate recalled the ceremony of 1862 and had its presiding officer read the Address on February 22. Within a few years, the Senate made the practice an annual event.
Every year since 1896, the Senate has observed Washington’s Birthday by selecting one of its members, alternating parties, to read the 7,641-word statement in legislative session. Delivery generally takes about 45 minutes. In 1985, Florida Senator Paula Hawkins tore through the text in a record-setting 39 minutes, while in 1962, West Virginia Senator Jennings Randolph, savoring each word, consumed 68 minutes.
At the conclusion of each reading, the appointed senator inscribes his or her name and brief remarks in a black, leather-bound book maintained by the Secretary of the Senate. Early entries in the notebook were typically brief explanations of the practice, accompanied by signature and date. Often, several entries appeared on a single page. In more recent years, entries have grown more elaborate and have included personal stories or comments on contemporary politics and policy. In 1956, Minnesota Senator Hubert Humphrey wrote that every American should study this memorable message. “It gives one a renewed sense of pride in our republic,” he wrote. “It arouses the wholesome and creative emotions of patriotism and love of country.” The book’s first entry bears the signature of Ohio Republican Joseph Foraker and is dated February 22, 1900. Links to selected entries are included below.

U.S. Congress. Senate. Washington’s Farewell Address. 105th Congress, 2d sess., 1998. S. Doc.105-22.
|I was on the phone this afternoon talking to a key student leader at Harvard about the spiritual shaking that began with our last conference. He said the agitation has accelerated now that Michelle Bachman and Rick Perry have become candidates. CNN and the media (as well as campus agitators) are zeroing in specifically on the “7 Mountains” message as their target. The devil is stirred up and trying to embarrass, slander and brand any candidate associated with Christian thought as if they were advocates of a Christian “Taliban” imposing some sort of religious dominion over others.As Andre and I spoke, he interrupted our call to receive a text from his wife … she had been evacuated from her office building because of an earthquake!By now you know the 5.8 quake was centered in Virginia, just northwest of Richmond. It shook Washington D.C. and tremors reached New York and even further north.
Virginia is nicknamed “Old Dominion” because of its key role as a governing state located in the drama of our formation as a nation. It gave us Jefferson, who penned our Declaration of Independence, and Washington, who led the fledgling armies of our revolution against Great Britain.
It’s hard not to state the obvious prophetic significance of this event as our Old Dominion is shaken.
For six months I have been emphasizing that Jesus told his disciples to “look up” when the “powers of heaven” are being shaken, because the “kingdom draws near.” In other words, in the last days … heaven is coming to a theater near you!
Following are the thoughts I had as I reflected on the day’s events and I wanted to share them with you.
Shaking may actually be an answer to our prayer for awakening. Let’s continue to lock shields and stand firm against the gates of hell.
“If we stay together, we survive.” -Maximus
The concept of the DC Initiative was birthed about 10 years ago as the Lord began to stir our hearts for our nation. We have prayed weekly as a church for the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of our government as well as for our Military. As we prayed for our nation the burden to make an impact on Washington, D.C. continued to increase. In October of 2010 we determined to make the move to northern Virginia to set up a base of operation.
We know we have been called to the DC region for such a time as this. We believe it is time once again to return to the principles of the Kingdom of God which made this nation great. We desire to partner with and be a support and encouragement to those already laboring in the DC region in any way we are able. To this end we rely on God’s wisdom, strategy and discernment to see this happen.
We have already begun our ministry here and we are continually looking for new opportunities to make impact in the lives of those in the DC region and beyond. Please pray for us and with us that effectual doors of ministry would continue to open up for us!
