Let Us All Give Thanks

Of Plymouth Plantation is considered to be the most complete source of the Pilgrim’s story. The following is a passage written by William Bradford, the first governor of Plymouth Colony describing the Pilgrim’s arrival to the shores of the New World in November of 1620:

Being thus arrived in a good harbor, and brought safe to land, they fell upon their knees and blessed the God of Heaven who had brought them over the fast and furious ocean, and delivered them from all the perils and miseries thereof, again to set their feet on the firm and stable earth, their proper element.”

On this day, let us all give thanks for our arrival in a good and safe harbor!
