About This Workshop

Many of us have heard the famous adage from Winston Churchill, “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” It seems that this current generation in America is proving Churchill right beyond all doubt. Many of us perceive that we are indeed falling into various forms of folly that we should have learned long ago to avoid. Why has the study of history diminished, and what forms of folly is our ignorance leading us into? How can we revive the study of history in order to acquire prudence or practical wisdom? How can many of us, who don’t know much history ourselves, begin to learn it along with our children and lead them along a path of wisdom that they might one day effectively lead and serve others? How can history be taught to impart virtue and as a meaningful and engaging story or narrative? Join us for this seminar in which we will consider these questions, consider what resources can help us, and engage in some Q and A at the end of the seminar.
