An intellectual understanding of the principles of liberty will not be enough. The blessings of liberty can only be maintained by people who live with the fires of faith, the valor of virtue, and the power of patriotism burning in their hearts. We invite you to join us as we plant seeds, nourish growth and cultivate faith in the hearts of the rising generation.
Faith: “He that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it, which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. . . “Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.”
Matt 13: 23, 31-32
Virtue: “I determined to give a week’s strict attention to each of the virtues successfully. . . . . Proceeding thus to the last, I could go through a course complete in thirteen weeks and four courses in a year. And like him who, having a garden to weed, does not attempt to eradicate all the bad herbs at once, which would exceed his reach and strength, but works on one of the beds at a time, and, having accomplished the first, proceeds to a second.”
Patriotism: “But what is it to love one’s country? Is it to carry a banner in a procession? Is it to shout as we see the flag? Is it to fling bunting from the tops of the buildings and send off sky-rockets in the evening? Vastly deeper than that is love of country –deeper than any soldier’s uniform, deeper than any pictures of battleships with which we adorn our walls. To love your country . . . is to love that for which your country stands. . .”
Rev. W. H. P. Faunce
