On the Cusp of the New World

While still aboard the Arabella, not quite yet landed to settle the Massachusetts Bay Colony, John Winthrop preached his famous message “A Model of Christian Charity.” It is most famous for the reference to “A City Upon a Hill”–a reference which Reagan used repeatedly. But it also contained one of the most beautiful sentences ever spoken in English:
