City on a Hill
By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted… (Proverbs 11:11)
William Bradford and the Mayflower Pilgrims dreamed of a society that would be like a “city on a hill,” setting an example for all the world of what a nation would be like under God’s Kingdom. They brought that “DNA” into what would become America. History’s freest and most prosperous nation was born, not in Philadelphia’s Constitution Hall, not in the debates between the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists, not even on the Yorktown battlefield, but in the hearts of the upright people who wanted to establish a society that would glorify God.
