Glenn Beck revealed on his radio program yesterday that he is planning to host an event next year designed to renew America’s covenant with God.
Beck was interviewing Tim Ballard, who runs Beck’s Nazarene Fund organization, about his books, “The Covenant: One Nation Under God” and “The Covenant, Lincoln, and The War,” which claim that the Pilgrims, the Founding Fathers, and several early American presidents made and repeatedly renewed covenants with God on behalf of the United States
Beck is apparently planning to take it upon himself to renew that covenant once again next summer.
“I told Tim … that I was going to do something big—a Restoring event—next summer,” Beck said. “I have felt strongly that it is supposed to be a renewal of the covenant.”
“We have to do it exactly right,” he added. “We have to repeat [George] Washington and [Abraham] Lincoln. We have to do it right and we, as a people, need to gather together and do it. So, next summer, we are going to do it.”
The details about where and went this event will take place are still being worked out, Beck said, but “I would just ask that you keep your calendar clear for summer next year.”
If all this sounds vaguely familiar, it’s because Beck has organized several of these “Restoring” rallies over the years, beginning with August 2010 “Restoring Honor” rally at the Lincoln Memorial, which he said was divinely inspired to spark revival in America.
