We think of the Pilgrims as resilient adventurers upheld by unwavering religious faith, but they were also human beings in the midst of what was, and continues to be, one of the most difficult emotional challenges a person can face: immigration and exile.
Nearly four centuries later, here we are, ourselves on a voyage this Thanksgiving, exiles in a foreign land, "strangers and pilgrims on the earth" (Heb. 11:13). And what shall be our spirit? Do we have the same dogged determination to be faithful to the vision that launched our movement? No matter the odds, the devastating price, the early pilgrims were a people not unlike the heroes of Hebrews 11, who "having seen [the promises] from afar off were assured of them." They did not turn back. And neither must we. "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith" (Heb.12:2).
