On the Road in January 2018


January 2, 2018 is coming to an end.  Did you keep your head above water today?  Every January 2nd I am bombarded with e-mails, requests, and reminders.  Everyone is back at work and everyone needs something.  Of course I am just as guilty on this front.  Yes–I sent my fair share of “back to work” e-mails today.

Most of the e-mails I responded to today were related to upcoming speaking engagements.  Here is where I will be in January:

January 3, 2018:  I will be giving a lecture titled “Why Study History” at Brethren Village in Litiz, PA.  This event is open to residents of the community.

January 5, 2018 (8:30–10:00am):  I will be in Washington D.C. for the annual meeting of the American Historical Association and will chairing a session on Messiah College’s Digital Harrisburg Initiative.

January 5, 2018 (3:30-5:00pm):  I will be chairing a session on the Bible in American Cultural and Political History at a joint meeting of the American Historical Association and the Conference on Faith and History

January 7, 14, 21, 28, 2018 (9:00 and 10:45):  I am teaching a course called “Christian Politics?” at West Shore Evangelical Free Church in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.

January 12, 2018: I will be co-leading a history teachers workshop on historical thinking for the New York State Association of Independent Schools at the Emma Willard School in Troy, New York.

January 16, 2018:  I will be leading discussions on the history of rural America and my book Was America Founded as a Christian Nation? at Boston Trinity Academy in Boston, Massachusetts.

January 21, 2018:  I am heading back to Philip Vickers Fithian country for a lecture at the Cumberland County Historical Society in Greenwich, NJ titled “The Greenwich Tea Burning in History and Memory.”  The lecture is free and open to the public.

I hope I see some of you out there!

We are already booking things for the Summer and Fall.  Believe Me: The Evangelical Road to Donald Trump will be out in the late Spring and I will be hitting the road with the book.  (Of course I am also available for lectures on themes related to any of my books).  Perhaps we can make something work.
