Yesterday I submitted a proposal to the area TEA party leaders. I asked about the possibility of working together to present a seminar entitled, "Faith of our Fathers." The topic would center around the American War for Independence and the religious influences that prompted it. The proposal was as follows:
The talk would be limited to an hour and would cover two basic points. First I would deal with some of the religious history that led up to the war, including the Reformation in Europe, the immigration of Protestants to America, and the influence of the Geneva Bible, the Great Awakening, and the famed New England Primmer.
The second half of the speech would address some of the particular religious beliefs which led the colonists to stand up against the tyranny of England.
I told them that I was not looking to receive any pay for it, but that I would gladly speak for free. I merely would like to opportunity to encourage people to think about the heritage and doctrines that shaped our nation.
I would ask for your prayers in this regard as it would be a great opportunity to reach a wider body of people.
