January's Title Swap

The following are the titles that were brought to our January book group. Each member brought a book from their family's personal cannon:

The Secret Garden - F.H. Burnett
Sign of the Beaver - E. G. Speare
Hank the Cow Dog - John Erickson
The Standard Works of the LDS Faith
The Narcissistic Family - Robert Pressman
Leadership Education - Oliver and Rachel DeMille

We had a great discussion for all those who were able to attend on the Fourth Turning. We discussed:
What our personal generational constellations were.
Archetypes Myths and meanings.
What our Scripts are in a Fourth Turning.
And the great importance of raising the next generation of Heroes.

After studying and discussing this topic at length, our group came to the conclusion that the US has already begun the Fourth Turning. It was trigger by the events that took place in 9-11-2001 and the crises will climax within 25 years from that event, (if we follow the cycles of history from the last 500 years). May we all be prepared as best we can for the upcoming times.

Finding Relevance in History

"The farther backward you look, the farther forward you are likely to see," Winston Churchill
Perhaps you yearned for a closer connection to the ancestral wisdom gained by real people who struggled to build the civilizations you inherited. Perhaps you yearned for a feeling Americans haven't known in decades: to be active participants in a destiny that is both positive and plausible...This is a book that turns History into Prophcey.
