Quote of the Week

President Carter has often said that the American people are good, fundamentally sound, sensible, and generous; in a word, much better than their politicians, who often fail to live up to them. I find it hard to disagree with him. On the other hand, the American novelist seems to be saying something quite different; namely, that something has gone badly wrong with Americans and with American life, indeed modern life, and that people are suffering from a deep dislocation in their lives, alienation from themselves, dehumanization and so on–and I’m not talking about poverty, racial discrimination, and women’s rights...Then who is right, President Carter or the novelists? It is possible that both are, that it is the politician’s function from Jefferson to Carter to inspire people to live up to the best that is in them, and that it is the novelist’s vocation from Dostoevsky to Faulkner to explore the darker recesses of the human heart, there to name and affirm the strange admixture of good and evil, the action of the demonic, the action of grace, of courage and cowardice, of courage coming out of cowardice and vice versa; in a word, the strange human creature himself–an admixture now that is perhaps stranger than ever.
— Walker Percy, "Going Back to Georgia"

Everything here is intentionally designed to fulfill one of our three foundational purposes:

  • To equip parents and teachers with the tools they need to feel confident in their ability to lead students into a love and understanding of literature. We already believe you are capable and that God has given you exactly what you need for your task. However, the confidence provided by continued personal training can fill us with peace and rest as we stand before our students.
  • To lighten the burden of a busy teacher or homeschooling parent by providing teaching resources for literary study. Even if you know the method inside and out, sometimes we just need to hold each other's hands up during these crazy days.
  • To provide an oasis of grace for all teachers, parents, and readers. There are so many standards to live up to, so many laws to keep. So often we retreat into our loneliness or put up a pretense of success. There's no need for that here. If there's any theme that is more prominent than any others throughout the Great Books, it is the strength that comes from a community founded on common weakness and failure. By reading and talking together about books, our schools, or even the everyday chaos, may we find that true friendship described by C.S. Lewis: "What? You too? I thought I was the only one!"

When you go to sleep worrying, or wake up anxious about your performance for the day, remember that you are God's beloved. Did you fail to finish your to-do list? You are loved. Did you snap at your kids? You are loved. Did you fail to teach in a restful manner? You are loved. Oh, and we all do those things too. A lot. Here in the Pelican Society we hope to cheer each other on in our intentions to teach well. But when you desire to do good, do so freely. There's way less riding on it than you think. God's got your back, and so do we. 

All our love,                                                                                     The Andrews
