Mayflower and Plymouth, UK

Recently a blog reader sent us a note and some photos we thought you would enjoy. Here’s what she said:

I am a blog reader from the UK. I loved seeing the books you suggested for Thanksgiving. I actually live on Plymouth UK, and we are preparing for the Mayflower 400 festival next year. I was walking past the Mayflower steps the other day and thought that you might like to see a couple of pictures of what it looks like. The first is close up with both flags. They have just built a new arch ready for next year.”

The second is a bit further away so you can see the houses behind it and the steps themselves.”

The last is the view out to sea which would have been what the pilgrims saw just before they set off.”

It was interesting to learn of the 400th year festival coming up and preparations for it. We especially liked the photo of what the pilgrims saw as they began their adventure into the unknown in search of a place where they could worship God in freedom.

Trusting in Jesus,
Teri

“But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall
worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh
such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him
must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23-24).

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this! We always read from “Thanksgiving, A Time To Remember,” by Barbara Rainey and listen to the music CD that accompanied it while enjoying our Thanksgiving breakfast. This will be a meaningful addition to tomorrow’s tradition.
