Christianity and the Founding of the Nation
Preparations for History course continue!
         Phone calls and people stopping Mark Vogl to ask about Christianity and the Founding of the Nation have been a part of Mark’s preparation for the course.
            “People are trying to get a handle on what I am doing,” Mark said.  “Some think it’s a Bible study, others wonder where the material is coming from?  Still others want the details on where and when we will meet?”
            Vogl has decided to open the first class, the introduction to the course to the general public so that people can get a solid understanding of the course, what its about, and what will they get from the class.
            Mark says there are more than a dozen sources for this course including The Christian Life and Character of the Civil Institutions of the United States. Vogl says that each student of the course will receive a copy of this 1,000 page encyclopedia on Christianity in early America.  Other sources include Forged in Faith,  A History of Christianity in the United States and Canada, and former East Texas Congressman L. P. McDonald’s We Hold These Truths.
            “So many people say America is going in the wrong direction, this course will provide a historical perspective based on facts, speeches, writings and events of the first three centuries of America that demonstrate clearly the role of Christianity in this nation’s founding. ” Vogl adds that he has been in contact with David Barton’s Wall Builders organization and will be using some of his American Heritage Series video material in support of his presentations.
            The first class will meet at 7 Pm, on Thursday, January, 16, 2014 at the Phenix Museum at Gilmer Airport.  The cost for the course is 150 dollars per person, 250 per family.
