This is a letter to our friends –

Principles of American Government – (PAG)

The next “Principles of American Government” online course is scheduled for Monday, June 18, 2018. Using Skype-video as a virtual classroom, students may interact with one another and the teacher. There are 24 classes (Mondays & Wednesdays) each lasting 75 minutes. In addition, 4-5 hours of quality study time per week is required. If there is sufficient interest, both morning and evening (identical) classes will be offered. There is no tuition, contributions are welcome. Though a bit obsolete, a course syllabus is available on our website (see letterhead).

A word to those who read this column regularly – I encourage you to invest a few hours a week in this course. The Lord has permitted me to learn and teach this material for over three decades. This is an opportunity to anchor basic principles in bedrock, then pass them along to others. My 88 years of life experiences add context to this material.

A word to parents – You have a unique obligation to your family, and your society, to train up the next generation. I urge you to invest time in this course. If you have teens or pre-teens, they should take the course with you!

Two text books are needed. They may be purchased from “Foundation for American Christian Education” (see Google). Also, used texts are available on line:

· “The Christian History of The Constitution of The …”, Vol. I “Christian Self-Government” [CAUTION – Vol. II “Christian Self-Government With Union” is not required.]

· “Teaching and Learning America’s Christian History”

This is not a course in the U S. Constitution. This is a course in the fundamental principles that inspired the creation of our founding documents. Phone or e-mail me if you are interested.

In His love & service

Ben Gilmore
