Beliefs of our Founders
with Ian Kaiser
As a businessman, pastor, and city manager, I have been passionate about making a difference in the communities I have lived and worked in. I have wrestled with change within a culture that resists change. I believe an examination of our history in light of our beliefs and changing culture can move us forward toward a more perfect union.
At a time when our country seems divided by extremism, this course draws upon history to offer a new perspective on God and politics. Religion shapes our public life. We will explore how our nation grapples with faith and government. How did our Founders and great leaders know where the work of God stopped and reason began? By exploring our history through the eye of Washington through Ronald Reagan, from the Declaration of Independence to the Civil Rights Movement of Martin Luther King and beyond, we will gain clarity on how their beliefs shaped our country.
