In 1630, a Puritan leader named John Winthrop stepped to the pulpit and delivered what would later be called, “the greatest sermon of the millennium”. His inspiring words brought a fresh vision to early colonists for what a new world in the wilds of America could be. 350 years later, the wilds of America had become the greatest nation in the world. But, locked in a Cold War and facing an economic crisis, it was a nation in need of a fresh vision of what it could be. Into this moment in history, Winthrop’s sermon continued to preach. The words of the first governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony inspired another governor who would cite Winthrop’s sermon on his way to the presidency. Hear how the greatest sermon of the millennium inspired one of America’s greatest presidents on this special episode of Faith and Liberty Rediscovered with Alan Crippen.
