Seven Reasons Why We Should Study History

1. History teaches us

2. History gives us insight

3. History reminds us

4. History cultivates humility

5. History is "family" history

6. History encourages us to give thanks

7. History is HIS story

Chesterton said that tradition is the "democracy of the dead". We as God's people would do well to learn about history and tradition, not only to learn from our mistakes, but in order to be connected to the invisible church of all times and places. In doing so we will be better equipped to give thanks for the past, have faith for the present, and hold hope for the future.
