What I Learned at Cambridge

At Cambridge University in England the professors follow a system of teaching which has produced leaders for eight centuries. Last month I visited Cambridge and two questions have haunted me since then. How does Cambridge continue this impressive tradition? Why do other universities insist on following methods that produce weak followers, and not strong leaders?

I am frequently asked questions about the wisdom of training Christians to produce movies. Is it right? Is it merely trying to “Christianize” the things of the world? This question reminds me of the story of an Irish entrepreneur named Guinness who once “fooled around” with alcohol in the same way I work with media. This young entrepreneur believed it was possible to turn the poisonous custom of binge drinking against itself, creating a replacement culture.

A Message From Geoffrey Botkin

Geoffrey Botkin

Why do historians call the family “the basic unit of society?” Because families build and then preserve the foundations of civilization. Parents and children can work together and learn together and create the very fabric of culture. When families know what they’re doing, the adventure of family life is stimulating beyond description. And home life becomes happy and highly rewarding. The families here at Western Conservatory are on an exhilarating mission to find and publish the lost secrets and tools families need to build the future. We are extraordinarily optimistic about the 21st century because we see so many American families rediscovering solid ground and a vision for freedom. Come with us on this journey of faith and promise. Let’s build the future together.
