When the Pilgrims arrived off of the coast of New England, before they landed, they signed a document called the Mayflower Compact. Some have seen this as the foundation of American democracy, while others have argued that it was a temporary arrangement, soon overruled, with little lasting impact. In this tour at the Forefather’s Monument in Plymouth, we discuss the story of compact, what it means, and why it was a landmark event in our country’s history.
We consider how God used the Pilgrims to change the world, and what we should learn from their example in modern times. This video was filmed at a Reformation Day Event hosted by Reformation Baptist Church. For more information, visit http://celebratereformationday.com/
