Why Classical Conversations? (1 of 3)

Many thanks to guest blogger Jeri Mazur, Shreveport Challenge B Director and 2009 Practicum speaker, for sharing these words of encouragement to challenge and inspire us for the upcoming year.

Why Classical Conversations?
By Jeri Mazur

It is hard to believe that the school year begins again so soon! I spent the early half of the summer traveling with Becky Logan for CC, speaking about the program and meeting some of the most inspiring families.

Just before the last practicum, as I was preparing for my talk, I was in awe again of the beauty of the mission, model, and method that is Classical Conversations.

Certainly, the importance of what we are doing was underscored by the fact that I sat in the lobby of our hotel, just under the television, which was blaring the news of the day.

Never before have we been more in need of a generation of intelligent, well-spoken young people who are able to see the world’s events in light of a biblical world-view and who are prepared to engage the culture while contending for the Christian faith.

I am convinced that what we are doing is so much bigger than just schooling!
