Happy Father's Day, Men!

Happy Father’s Day, men! Today is the day you get to kick back and relax, maybe enjoy a steak with family and watch some golf. Whatever your favorite pastime may be, I hope you’re to rest, recreate, and celebrate. I realize reading an email from the CEO of Classical Conversations probably wasn’t high on your list of things to do this weekend, so let me get right to the point.

Defending Host Churches Against Anonymous Letters

 

Several years ago, about 2500 churches that support and host Classical Conversations communities received anonymous letters demanding they disband their CC communities or else fear losing their non-profit status. In an article for The Federalist—an online magazine reporting on politics, religion, and culture—writer Jenni White argues against the claims of the anonymous letters, defending the thousands of churches who graciously support their local communities by providing homeschool families with a place to meet and educate their children. Below is a brief excerpt from the article:

An Easter Message From CEO Robert Bortins

Think back a year to last Easter. To say these 12 months have been difficult is an understatement. People have experienced tragedy like never before. Depression, anxiety, and loneliness are the norm for many worldwide, causing some to seek any sort of escape just to make the days bearable. Even the most faithful of Christians can understandably have moments of doubt during these times, moments of questioning.

My Classical Conversations Story - Robert Bortins

It was a beautiful, sunny day at Clemson University. I was in my sophomore year and had just dropped off my tuition check at the registrar’s office when I got a phone call from my mom, Leigh Bortins. We all have those moments in life that we remember so vividly. Typically, it’s something really life changing. My mom said, “Robert, your dad is thinking about getting you a car for college. He changed his mind, though, and quit his job. He is going to homeschool your younger brothers, and I am going to try to make Classical Conversations a real business. You’ll have to pay for the rest of college, yourself.” So, I went to the co-op office and asked what jobs they had available for the next semester.

Is CC a Multi-Level Marketing Scheme?

"No way. Do not involve us in an educational multi-level marketing scheme!"

Having succeeded and failed at more than one multi-level marketing (MLM) “opportunity” in the past, it shocked me that my husband responded to my proposal that I Direct with Classical Conversations in such a forceful way. Surely, he could recognize that what I was describing was not anything like the modest successes and notable failures my MLM experience held?

Obviously not. Time to back pedal and respectfully explore his objection and perception.
