Know the Past to Understand the Future

Saturday May. 20, 2017

Have you ever wondered why you should study history?  While it is interesting to see how people lived in the past, what other uses does history have? Join historian Jordan Jachim in exploring the importance of history in this lecture.  Knowledge of the past can help us make decisions in the future, avoiding errors that previous generations have committed.  “Those who do not learn from the past are condemned to repeat it.”  But history can also encourage us.  While one act of kindness to a stranger sometimes seems insignificant, did you know that this resulted in the discovery of a hidden cache of treasure during World War II?  History can also educate us and entertain us, but most importantly, it shows us how faithful God has been in guiding our lives.
