Rev. Dr. Matthew Johnson
In 1648, a group of lay leaders and ministers gathered at Harvard College in Cambridge, MA to create a covenant between them. How shall the Puritan Churches be organized? How shall authority be shared? And what is the church for? The decisions they made then still influence our lives–our churches, our democracy, and our faith. We’ll reflect on this legacy–including who, already living in the “new world”, was left out of their deliberations.
