The White Oak Spoke?

White OakThis white oak, the oldest in America and more than twice as old as our nation, is dying.

Under its spreading branches George Whitefield once preached to 3,000 people as the fires of the Great Awakening began to sweep across the colonies and gave rise to the experiment in Christian liberty that is America.

Most of its branches are now dead and the tree has been diagnosed as being in a “spiral of decline.”
