“A Modell of Christian Charity”


“We must entertain each other in brotherly affection. We must be willing to abridge ourselves of our superfluities, for the supply of others necessities. We must uphold a familiar  commerce together in all meekness, gentleness, patience, and liberality. We must delight in each other; make others conditions our own; rejoice together, mourn together, labor and suffer together, always having before our eyes our commission and community in the work of the same body.  So shall we keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace.”

Governor John Winthrop, Massachusetts Bay Colony 1630

Happy Thanksgiving.
