Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk continue examining the theological history of America. They talk about the early failed settlements of the Spanish and French, why America didn’t become an Anglican nation, why the Jamestown colony succeeded, the importance of tobacco and the beginnings of slave labor in America, and the Thanksgivings of the of early settlers.
In this short Thanksgiving special Dr Koontz reads his article, A Plea for America, from the Spring 2022 edition of Christian Culture magazine.
In this special Thanksgiving episode Dr Koontz reads selections from various accounts and poems relating to Thanksgiving and Armistice Day (now known as Veteran’s Day) and gives us meditations on Thanksgiving, and on surviving in dark times as the pilgrims who founded the holiday did.
