Classical. Christian. Education. What is it? Classical education is not a curriculum you can buy or a fixed pattern of learning for all people at all places at all times. This is especially true if we consider the education offered in the classical period. Ancient Greek culture stretches over hundreds of years and embraces a wide variety of philosophies and forms of education. If we add Roman ideas, then we add centuries more history and even greater diversity. Global Christians have… Read more

In the movie Inception, the characters are able to enter into the dreams of other people. While in the dream, they can enter yet again a dream of a person in the dream. This gets pretty confusing, especially knowing whether one is in reality or a dream if they lose track of how many dreams they’ve jumped into. To deal with this problem, the characters have devices known as totems, where the behavior of the totem tells them whether they… Read more

I asked for guest voices and I got …awesomeness. Today we hear from Leilani Mueller. Leilani Mueller is the wife to Nathan, a philosopher and mother to Felicity and Gabriel with one more inside. She writes, thinks, teaches, directs, and tries to live an examined life. ————————————————- My son laughs easily and it engulfs the attention of the room like fair spring weather after the cold.

Long ago cartoons, programming for younglings, most happened on Saturday morning. I recall looking forward to the new shows. . . What is Super Friends? Scooby-doo? Hong Kong Phooey? This was not the best of cartoon times. Mom and Dad “let” me get up early and watch what was worth watching. . . My generation may have come to traditionalism by noticing that the old cartoons (Bugs Bunny! Daffy! Mickey!) were so much better than Speed Buggy. After cartoons, we… Read more

I am sorry. Why? I loved being in love, but my ideas about love as a youngling were harmful. Lord Jesus Christ, son of God, have mercy on me a sinner. God used His servant, Charlotte Bronte, to educate me. Jane Eyre is the Christian romantic novel: structured from Genesis (Jane born in the ‘red room’) to Revelation (‘Amen; even so come, Lord Jesus!’ is the last line). Jane Eyre reminds us that the “super-Christian,” the one that blusters about holiness continuously,… Read more

I asked for some new voices from social media chums. Here is a Daniel Larsen, a former student. ————————————————— Recently, a friend asked on social media what people thought about the church being criticized for saying “God will not give you more than you can handle”. The argument goes that the church should not be saying this because God will give us more than we can handle, but He will empower us to endure it. My friend then argued that… Read more

I went looking for different voices. Some I agree with, some not so much. All are younger than I am and are interesting. This argument comes from John Lepp. He has an MSc in Philosophy from the University of Edinburgh, specializing in the Philosophy of Science. He resides in Boca Raton, Florida, with his beautiful wife and cat. The argument is also elegant. ——————————————- Stephen Law states his “Evil God Challenge” as follows: “We can be pretty sure there is no… Read more

We need some new voices . . . And so I went looking. Some I will agree with utterly, some not so much. All are bright, younger than I am, and worth reading.
