Build. Fight.

Build Fight

I would like to introduce you to an important campaign just launched by New St. Andrews College. First, please take a moment to click here and watch the video. I will either wait here, or come along with you to watch the video again with you. It's that good. Now that you are back, I want to say a few things about what it means to build and what it means to fight. We must build before the face of God, and we must fight before the face of God. All our activities and actions are coram Deo: “The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good” (Prov. 15:3). “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do” (Heb. 4:13). Whether we remember this or not does not affect whether or not it happens -- in Him we live and move and have our being -- but it does affect whether we behave intelligently in the face of omniscience.

First, we provide a rigorous liberal arts education in the classical Christian tradition. It is important to note that the Christianity is not added to the liberal arts as a condiment supplied for the sake of flavoring. Our commitment to Jesus Christ is essential to every aspect of our mission, including our decision to offer a liberal arts degree. Second, we don't take Federal money. As the morass of statist entanglements continues to destroy higher education in America, making the whole thing a sinkhole the size of Rhode Island, NSA has kept itself free of all such entanglements. We are free to pursue and teach what we believe to be the truth, simply because we believe it to be such. We are not financially beholden to any form of paganism on the Potomac.

If you have thought about training for pastoral ministry, you may want to check out Greyfriars Hall. Greyfriars is a ministerial training program that functions under the oversight of the session of elders at Christ Church. You can read more about the program both here and here. There are openings for the fall. If you are accepted, the tuition is free. You do have to buy your own books, and you still have to feed your wife and children, but there is no tuition. In addition, because of cross-listed courses, when you are done with Greyfriars, you will have about half of the work for New St. Andrews' MA in Theology and Letters completed. … [Read more...]
