The church that birthed America

The brick alleyway leading to an inner courtyard may be lined with bicycles, but inside the cloister and across the lawn the English Reformed Church stands as it has since 1607.

The building itself dates to the Middle Ages and once served as a chapel for Beguines, a Catholic order that helped to care for the elderly in the housing enclave known as the Begijnhof. Following the Reformation it became a Protestant church and a haven for Separatists who fled England, the center of English worship in the Dutch Calvinist city.

About 100 Separatists worshipped in the garden chapel before most made their way to Leiden, and—as any fifth-grader in America should be able to tell you—40 of them set out in 1620 aboard the Mayflower. ...

the Mayflower Compact was something new under the sun.

Every free man on the ship was invited to sign ” including those who in England, as mere uneducated laborers, would have had no political rights.

I was looking for something of a different topic when I ran across this article. I don't know how the videos are in fact the one supposedly comparing Puritans and Pilgrims I never could get to work, but the article itself is accurate from other material that I have read on the topic It may be too concise, and I actually found there are places that I wish it had gone into more detail. So, the article itself I think is quite good. The importance to New England culture is pointed out as well as some of the factors that may have been spread to other parts of America.

[Puritanism] laid the foundation for the religious, intellectual, and social order of New England. Puritanism, however, was not only a historically specific phenomenon coincident with the founding of New England; it was also a way of being in the world–a style of response to lived experience–that has reverberated through American life ever since.

A very blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving to all who post on SA and to the moderators who try to keep us all in line. We may disagree and squabble now, but I have a feeling that when we see the glories of Jesus Christ and His majestic city, we'll say to one another, "Now what was it we were fussing about?"

“Living God, speak to us words of life and give us strength for the journey,” begins Rev. Lance Stone in a sermon at the English Reformed Church on Oct. 29. Now long affiliated with the Church of Scotland, the church for 400 years only missed holding English-language services during Nazi Germany’s occupation of Amsterdam. The congregation is again growing and supports a mission hospital in Malawi.

In his sermon Stone, too, recounted Moses’ journey with God’s people through the wilderness to reach the promised land, though Moses is barred from entering. “Christian faith is a bearing witness in word and deed to God’s liberating future,” he said. “The grace of God in Jesus Christ triumphs and brings us through the wilderness of this world.”

America has not become the promised land, but it has been used by God to bless the whole world. Let’s pause to consider that blessing this Thanksgiving along with the bounty before us. A blessing we pilgrims again may take to other desolate wildernesses of the world.

Ps119:54"Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage"

1Pet2:"11Dearly beloved,
I beseech you as strangers
and pilgrims,
abstain from fleshly lusts,
which war against the soul;
12a Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: .."
