History and the Healing of the Nations

This reflective and inspiration CD and study materials package, based on the Covenant Dance of Nations, helps teachers and students of the Bible and history think critically about our nation's history and its impact upon current and future generations.

Through written materials and accompanying music, readers will be challenged to humbly reexamine our nation's history and our individual hearts. In addition, these materials are provided to inspire us to work to reconcile the long standing wounds which have divided the Church and our nation.

The materials in History and the Healing of the Nations are divided into three sections:

  1. Section 1 is offered primarily to activate the student’s muse. Peruse these pages at your leisure and contemplate how our ideas about history shape our larger view of the world in which we live today. The scriptures remind us: “Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did.” (I Cor. 10:6) If you feel comfortable handling history, you may wish to go directly to Section 2.
  2. Section 2 requires listening to the accompanying The Covenant and the Dance of Nations CD. We recommend that you listen to the entire CD once through to become acclimated to the music, then go back through the songs one at a time and work through the study guide material.
  3. Section 3 challenges us to become actively involved in the process of reconciliation, first by examining our own lives and attitudes and secondly by becoming engaged in new relationships.
