America’s Providential Founding

It’s less than two weeks away! Pete Olson, a good friend who is also a historian with a contagious love for history, will be in Salem, West Virginia, sharing on “America’s Providential Founding”. Come one! Come all! Knowing Pete, it will be very educational and very encouraging!

One of his stops is the Salem Depot. While the railroad tracks that put Salem on the map are now themselves a part of history, the Salem Depot remains as a welcoming host to bikers, hikers and . . . history lovers. Pete’s presentation there on the last Friday of June at 7:00 in the evening will be complete with a question-and-answer time for those who seriously want to understand the hearts and minds of our founding fathers. For a complete listing of presentations, including ones at Salem International University, Smithburg and Sabraton/Morgantown, visit Vision Heirs.

We will not only learn about history, but we will be challenged to apply Biblical principles and character to our own lives as we are inspired by the vision of our forefathers and see more clearly how we can even now return to the foundation that made it great. It will be a landmark day! Pray with us for God to receive much glory as we uncover His “wonderful acts to the children of men”. History is His-story! And He wants for each of us to have a part in it.

    This is exciting! I remember talking with Mr. Olson about history as we hiked in the Colorado Rockies together and enjoying it immensely. He knows so many fascinating facts and fun stories!

    I wish I could be there! I love history, especially the providential history of our country. Thanks for heading it all up, Donald. May God bless your “secret” preparations with “open” results.

    Amen! History is God’s Story. And when seen from His perspective, it makes sense. I remember hearing Mr. Rushdoony on tape once share a story about a history professor who expressed disdain for having to teach history. He saw no point to it. Why remember the past when there is no hope in the future worth living for in the present? Praise the Lord for the hope He gives! May all final preparations come together smoothly.
