It’s done. All 90 pages, written and/or compiled by yours truly, with some assistance from other wise souls.
It did require that I read more books, website articles, and constitutions than I would like to admit. But I am so excited about the trainings to come.
And here’s what I learned:
Considering the fact that I have a degree in this field and have read a number of related academic books, I use Wikipedia far too frequently.
It’s surprisingly difficult to separate myself from America and the American system of government and democracy that I know to present an objective view. This took considerable effort and additional research.
And last, I am a nerd. I do find politics intriguing, particularly the role it plays in social development. I am thrilled to be teaching these courses, because for me, politics inspires my faith. It inspires the Kingdom to come through sin-ruined structures. It shows me Christ’s presence in the very forms that save us from ourselves.
So there you have it. The curriculum is finished and sent off, ideally to be translated. And I am off, in just hours, for rest!
