An Introduction to the Life of Samuel Davies

"On this episode. I'm on location in Virginia and we're here to talk about the missionary or possible to Virginia's he was known Samuel Davies. Samuel Davies was born on November the third seventeen twenty three three as a young man. He was educated at Blair's log college. This is Samuel Blair. This is in Chester County Pennsylvania Blair's log college. It was modeled after the original log college of the tenants over in the shamanic Pennsylvania that of course became Princeton University but this is Blair's log college. When he was finished with his education he was ordained as a minister in seventeen forty seven at the age of twenty four and the presbytery sent him to Hanover County Virginia George Whitfield had gone through Hanover county in seventeen forty five and so are they sent along Samuel Davies to help some of those seeds that had been sown grow. The ten years that Samuel Davies was there from seventeen seventeen forty-seven through the end of seventeen fifty seven those years are known as the years of the Hanover revivals was during that time that Davies I started seven churches and he pastored those seven churches he taught many not only of the whites here in Virginia but also African Americans some slaves freed African Americans he taught Indians he wanted to establish a college log college like he had been trained at but he just wasn't able to all of those seven churches so we had a college on wheels he would carry along in his wagon books and he would just give out books to various students young men who showed promise in the church to be trained as he would go from church to church well in seventeen. I'm fifty three for two years. He took a hiatus from his ministry here in Virginia and joined Gilbert tenant to go to England on a fundraising tour for for the College of New Jersey which would come to be called Princeton. It was a very successful fundraising tour and they were able to raise enough money to build Nassau Hall aw there on the campus of Princeton and when it was built it was the largest building an all of the American colonies and Samuel Davies helped raise the money seventeen fifty nine year before the death of Jonathan Edwards as president of Princeton the trustees of Princeton invite Samuel Davies to come and be the president. He arrives sometime in the fall of seventeen fifty nine. He serves there for about eighteen months and he dies in seventeen eighteen sixty one of consumption as we look at Samuel Davies Life. We can see five things that marked his life. I was his oratory. Sorry he was quite a speaker. Patrick Henry would come in here. Samuel Davies preaches often as he could because he was just so impressed by his rhetorical skill skill and how he could just hold an audience and how he could be so persuasive with the spoken word. Secondly is religious liberty. This was an Anglican colony. He was a dissenter he was illegal here in Virginia and he constantly had to petition for his presence in for or these churches that he had planted to be established he would argue in the capital at Williamsburg based on the sixteen eighty nine act of tolerate that there should be religious freedom here in the colonies. Thomas Jefferson used his arguments to later argue for religious liberty. He was committed education should not only training students here as he pastored these churches but also as president of Princeton. He was a poet he wrote many poems. He wrote a hymn who who is a pardoning. God like the or who has grace so rich and free and finally he was a preacher he preached for the conversion and the salvation of men well that is Samuel Davies the apostle to Virginia born on November third seventeen twenty three died died on February four seventeen sixty one and I'm Steve Nichols.

"Hear some voices right now from North Carolina earlier today on morning edition, Wilmington deputy fire, chief John Mason expressed concern that rescuers still have not yet accessed the most heavily flooded areas in coastal North Carolina. In the aftermath of Florence on the northern part of New Hanover county is worthy majority of the flooding years today. I'm fearful that that's where the most affected folks are. It's a little more rural than the city. It's completely flooded up there. So suspect it when we get up there today to clear, there's neighborhoods, they will be certainly inundated with water. That's Wilmington, deputy fire, chief John Mason speaking to morning edition today, we'll tweeting us now from Leland. North Carolina is Kevin was Ardo. He's news director at WW, a y, three TV, Kevin, welcome to on point tie for having me. Thanks for joining us. I mean, how is it where you are? How what was what's the weekend been like, oh, it's been a bit. Crazy weekend. I mean, we have a hurricane that comes in and basically stalls out it's bad enough and then we had tornadoes and the station. We had a hunker down in the middle of the live broadcast and and because of a tornado coming through. But we were on the air for eighty three and a half hours from noon, Thursday till eleven thirty last night. And now we're just trying to assess the damage and see what the cleanup's going to be like. Okay. So the cleanup may take a while to get here though. Right? Because I mean everyone's talking about state officials are talking about that the flood threat is still nowhere near gone. I mean, so how much water is there? There's a lot every place it's now everybody's kind of on a series of islands. Even within this area. We can't get to certain places that we want to get through to see things we, there's a town city name, boiling spring lakes here in Brunswick county, south of Wilmington that has been absolutely devastated. They have several big lakes and one of them, the dam breached and flooded out, and it's it may be one of the worst hit areas and we can't get to it. We were going to be able to go along with some of the crews that were going out there. They're going to leave the emergency operation center down the road, but we can't get down the road to get to them. So it's just it's just a mess. I'm watching video right now in our newsroom of helicopter flying over the coast. We can see some of the damage and along the beaches and some of it's not as bad as you would think. But inland. Flooding mass is just bad. And the biggest issue is that the whole southeast corner of the state right now is cut off from everybody else. So they're having to fly in supplies and think about bringing ships in because you can't the major highways in and out of the area are all closed. Okay. So you're in Leland there. I mean, you mentioned Wilmington, which has been entirely cut off, right? I mean, how far is leeland from Wilmington, we're just across the river. So we actually until this year our studio was downtown and we just moved out to the suburbs and a new building. And but yeah, we can get we can get back and forth. But one of our folks, you know, went home last night to south of Wilmington and getting back. She had to take a totally different set of roads to get back because you know, the water comes up here and they blocked this off, and then it goes down and comes up somewhere else. So I mean, you were just talking about having airlift supplies into people of food water or bring them in by ship. I mean, how, how long do officials and whether ficials there in the Carolinas think that this. The the waters are going to continue to rise. I mean, the rivers aren't sat across to later this week and once they do, they're going to be up for quite some time. I mean, we have rivers that are forecast to be ten fifteen feet above flood stage. I mean, it's going to be record flooding..

Yeah. I mean, there's no timetable on that stuff. They're still so many people without power. And you know, when you go when you're in Wilmington again, nobody can get to us. You know, we're on an island here. You know, eventually they're going to have to fix the roads. And the main artery into town of I forty two comes from Raleigh.

"Fifteen minutes. Somebody's falling off how we're doing as Florence moves inland. The threat is catastrophic flooding remember how Houston flooded after hurricane Harvey last year. Meteorologist Jeff Huffman says there are now similar concerns with a tremendous amounts of rain projected to fall through the weekend and into next week. There are certainly going to be some areas that are going to come close to the Harvey numbers. It's a little early to speculate. If we're going to surpass those numbers, but the forecast at least in terms of the magnitude is very similar, and it's been a similar setup. Flooding is a problem in North Carolina's New Hanover county at a press conference this afternoon. New Hanover county sheriff Ed McMahon urged people who had not evacuated in time to stay home, and let emergency responders do their jobs. No that that we're out there. If you've left we're gonna do everything we can to keep. All your property safe. And if you've stayed than just stay put together as you can see we'll get we're gonna get through this. We always do five people have died so far in this storm, including two in the city of Wilmington after a tree crashed onto a family's house this morning. Chris drei is the New Hanover county manager and joins us now. Welcome. Thank you. Right. Describe what you've seen so far today we have seen an onslaught of wind and rain that that really began late last night and continued on through the day. And we believe still we still have hours to go the winds still blowing it more than forty miles an hour sustained gusts well about fifty and sixty we've seen the rainfall estimates lowered from twenty inches last now backup to perhaps twenty six inches. So it's really wet in really windy twenty six inches. You're talking about more than two feet of water. How are the rescue efforts going? We have been blessed to to this point to to not have very many rescue efforts necessary. There was a reference to two unfortunately to death earlier today that was the only entrapment that that we had but other than that we have been very lucky and very blessed. Do you think that's because most people heeded the evacuation notice I think our community is very resilient and understands the threats that hurricanes and tropical events pose to our region. And so when the orders to evacuate are given particularly off the barrier islands people. Listen,.

"A tree fell on a home on Mercer avenue and a mother and her young baby lost their lives that tree falling on the home of the three of them were in the the house there in the back room, the mom, the dad and the baby and the mom and the baby died. The dad was injured the tree fell on his leg and emergency crews said they thought they were going to have to amputate his leg. Fortunately, they were able to get the tree off it took some time and he is in a hospital with injuries. But a hard time for the firefighters here, we really saw an emotional time where they all came together for prayer circle. Because I mean, this is the that's the worst that could happen here in a did a horrible tragedy with the mom the baby losing their lives. And so. They're hoping that was the worst of it. Because that was not just one tree there's dozens of trees like that route Wilmington. There's a lot downtown down. But the big trees really as we were driving from Wilmington to right before. Right. So the huge mass trees or down to all over the area on roadways in neighborhood on homes and so. Sessile out of that damage because they weren't removing those trees, they're really just today focusing on any rescues or making sure people were okay. They hope you do that tomorrow. Once things if the rain and the wind gusts clear out of here, which is probably not going to happen early in the morning. So time will tell when that's going to start happening. But as far as that curfew, you mentioned they want people to stay off the roadways for exactly what you're seeing here. There supreme everywhere. Just in downtown Wilmington, not as much as we're seeing throughout the other roadways with a massive trees down. But the power lines are big concern to more than eighty percent of people. Here don't have power so IRI dragging on the streets. It was hard to see anything because no street lights. No anything. The only thing. You're seeing is people have generators. So I'm sure by tomorrow. A lot of people are going to get stir crazy guys because there's nothing open for good reason. There's nothing opened. They don't want people coming out. But a lot of people are in hotels. They went inland and a lot of people laughed, right? Phil area in the Wilmington area. They're anxious to get back home. But they don't want you to even try to get back to this area until they give the all clear. The shelters are full. There's five shelters here. They're all full. And so just a lot of assessing to do as time goes on once the rain and win like I said, we we're actually getting a nice break right now. This is calm considering what you know early this morning a hundred mile more than one hundred mph with us. We're coming here. And throughout the day was pretty strong, the rain, but this is actually not that bad said, I'm enjoying this compared to what it's been like the last twenty four hours you need a little bit of a break. Diane and sodas everyone else there in New Hanover county. Diane. I'm happy to see you put your boots on. I'm sorry. I missed teasha, Diana. Yes. Yes. You know? I love the crocks. I know a couple of years they did reach out to me and my boss because they were not happy. If you caught any my coverage I was wearing sandals yesterday. And before I got into the floodwaters, I know better not to go any floodwaters without my boots on. I did always have my boots with me when I felt I needed them. I was comfortable my sandals yesterday. I felt safe in my sandals. Yesterday. Was raining. There is not any debris at that point that I thought I was putting myself in danger, but I've taken all of their suggestions that I have my boots on and they will stay on as I go through the flood waters. Yes. As I saw you walking in the water, Diane. I was thinking to myself, I hope they're boots under there. Don't worry. Hearing about it. If I did it. All right. Dan was talking about the the shelter population. And it's really the numbers are pretty staggering across the state.

"Closer to your home, maybe get inside your home. By the time it gets to eleven feet. That first floor is completely flooded and. You may not have anywhere to go, and we're not just talking about coastal communities were talking about inland locations as well because that surge is going to go up into those rivers well inland and it could possibly inundate those communities in. We've talked about this for several tide cycles. This is going to last. It's not a typical storm where it comes in and it leaves in a couple of hours. This storm is going to stay here for a very, very long time. It's very unusual for storm to just sit here like this Anderson. And of course there's, I said, stop for anything. It started raining again. So I'm an idiot just in the next few hours as quickly. What can we expect? Well, let's go back to the wall show you in the next couple of hours. We're going to continue to see the rain. We're going to continue to see the wind. The storm is going to continue to push that water. So the next couple of hours just continue to see that that that water push inland push to the west. The rain is going to continue to come down and like you said, it's going to go come. And then sometimes it won't be there. But the closer that storm gets to shore, that's when we'll start to see the more relentless rains along with the wind. So I think by mid morning tomorrow tomorrow afternoon, that is going to be very, very close with it. Only moving five miles per hour. It's going to be well into tomorrow before it gets close enough, but with with winds already at one hundred mile per hour, gusts at Cape lookout. People are already feeling the effects big time.
