Washington enlisted the assistance of Alexander Hamilton in the composing of a document which offered the Presidents’ wisdom and advice to the nation.

As stated in the opening chapter Dr. Dawn poses the following question, “...can we develop a theology of worship for the Church to flourish and grow in a turn-of-the century culture?” As church leaders brainstorm and search for ways to reach the masses, they must be cautious. As Dr. Dawn states, “When we allow our society to force us to “dumb down” the Church, we kill theological training, inhibit the forming of character, prevent appreciation for the rich gifts of the Church’s
Washington’s Farewell Address Elections are coming up, and it’s time to figure out who we want to give the keys to. I figure it might clear things up if I take a sec to explain why I’m not running.

The historical figure I choose to do, is Martin Luther. My reasoning behind choosing Martin Luther was because when we learned about him, I just wanted to simply know more. Martin Luther seemed to be the type of person that speaks his mind and means what he says. Martin Luther was badgered by his parents to become a lawyer, but Martin knew he wanted to become a monk. So he instead became a monk and theology teacher instead.
