THE MAKING OF A COVENANT
The Mayflower Compact
The concept of “America’s Covenant” can be traced back first to the Mayflower Compact in 1620 and then 10 years later when John Winthrop led a flotilla of 11 ships to New England, where the city of Boston and the Massachusetts Bay Colony were founded. In Winthrop’s words, “we have entered into an explicit Covenant with God” to lead provident lives lest the Lord “breaks out in wrath and make us know the price of the breach of such a covenant.”
If there ever was a time when Americans needed to be reminded of the covenant that the Pilgrims and the first European settlers made, it is today. Now, 400 years later after the signing of the Mayflower Compact, this covenant is being renewed this coming 4th of July in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
Both Washington and Lincoln referred to covenants made by earlier generations and renewed them themselves. Event speakers will trace those events and relate them to the trouble and turmoil Americans face today as people of faith contend with secularists who reject the notion of “one nation, under God.” As one writer has noted, America is “at a tipping point, where the scales could be tipped in either direction.” Unless we act, he said “America will go down the path of so many once great nations of history. For make no mistake about it, it was not human pedigree, ingenuity or superiority that made America great; it was God's blessing through the covenant our forefathers and foremothers made with Him.”
It’s called RESTORING THE COVENANT ON THE SACRED LAND OF GETTYSBURG, a three-day affair featuring Glenn Beck, Tim Ballard, David Barton and Rabbi Daniel Lapin, and YOU’RE INVITED! This special occasion promises to be a chance to join with like-minded people to reflect on the spiritual foundations of the United States of America and renew our covenant as one nation, under God. Events will begin on Friday, July 3rd and culminate on Sunday, the 5th, with keynote addresses and major activities on Saturday, the 4th of July.
On Friday, July 3rd, there will be break-out sessions in mid-morning and mid-afternoon with headliners (details to come); that evening, a special dinner. On Saturday, the 4th of July, the main RESTORING THE COVENANT event will take place, followed that evening by a buffet at the sports complex culminating that evening by fireworks. And last of all, a service on Sunday.
