Democracy Through My Eyes

When I first heard, years ago, that the word Democracy was nowhere in the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence I was startled. This could not be true. Our government is a Democracy! As it turns out, our Founders feared democratic rule. The Founders preferred the word “Republic. My sermon will share the truth about the differences between the two.

Our reader Debby Losse will share these words by Rev. Scott Taylor (from Soul Matters):

“Whereas history pleads, ‘Protect what we put into place!’ Heritage urges, ‘know the plotline of which you are a part.’ History is what happened. Heritage is a story unfolding.

“History tends to trap us in tales about what they did. Heritage inevitably gets us talking about what we are called to do.”
