This is a letter to our friends –


Without a proven set of principles you have only your opinion. Who is to say your opinion is better than another’s? A month from now (Wednesday, 9/7/16 at 9AM) we will begin the next online course in “Principles of American Government”. (PAG)

Amplifying: “The cause, source, or origin of uniquely American forms of direction, regulation, control, and restraint in families, churches and civil government”. i.e. American exceptionalism.

I write that to show that this is not an academic course on constitutional mechanics. This course teaches the sound principles upon which our unique American culture is founded.

I find only three human organizations created by the God of the Bible – family, church, and state. Each is governed by principles. Within those principles is peace and growth. Outside of them is chaos.

What was common knowledge at our founding has been lost over decades through false teaching and apathy. If America is to be restored to her foundations, there must be a core of leaders and followers who understand and honor American exceptionalism!

To this cause I am dedicated, as is the PAG course. Our interactive classes (We use Skype video) are usually half teens and half adults and seniors. Seniors are especially welcome. Their experience adds depth for the youngsters. Those interested in participating should contact us.

Please see the ACH web site (letter head above) for student comments and a syllabus.
