By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We were so pleased and honored to have N.D. Wilson join us this past Friday, sharing his talk on “Created to Create.”

N.D. Wilson is a best-selling author, popular speaker, and Fellow of Literature at New Saint Andrews College. His book Death by Living won top honors in Christianity Today’s 2014 Book Awards in the spirituality category. Wilson is also the author of many more titles, including Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl, the Ashtown Burials series, the 100 Cupboards trilogy (now in dozens of languages around the world) Leepike Ridge, Boys of Blur and The Amazing Dr. Ransom’s Bestiary of Adorable Fallacies. In addition, he is a screenwriter and director, currently adapting C.S. Lewis’ The Great Divorce. N.D. Wilson received his B.A. from New Saint Andrews College in 1999 and an M.A. from St. John’s in Annapolis, MD, in 2001.  He and his wife, Heather, live in a tall skinny house in the rolling hills of Idaho, along with their five children and nearly as many pets as Noah’s kids had on the Ark.
We have been given a special opportunity to offer a signed, hardcover of his latest book, Outlaws of Time: The Legend of Sam Miracle to our friends and family at a special rate of $17.00.
If you are interested in purchasing his latest book at this special price, please go to THIS LINK and enter your name, email address and quantity you desire to purchase.  We will be placing the order on Wednesday, May 11 at noon.

What’s in a Name? (part 3)

A New Name

In recent weeks we have posted about “What’s in a Name?” asking the important questions that lead us to considering a name change for Dominion. We’ve decided to move forward under a new name: Oak Hill Classical School. This name meets our original criteria of clarity and effectively communicates our commitments. It’s also more concrete and a natural symbol. As I mentioned in my earlier email about names, Oak Hill carries some powerful freight.

In addition to having oaks, the school’s future location is hilly. But oaks are symbols of strength, a hope more important, the “hill”
alludes to Jesus’ call for His disciples to be “the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden” (Matthew 5.14). We hope this for our students–that their growth in wisdom, joy, and love would influence our community both here and more broadly.

What’s in a Name? (Part 2)
Last week I mentioned that we are considering a new name for Dominion. I wanted to follow up with some criteria I’ve developed after conversations with other schools that have changed names.
1. Clear and concise.
2. Communicate (implicitly or explicitly) our key commitments: Christ-centered, classical, community, presence, stability
3. Concrete is better than abstract; that is, a person/thing over a concept.
4. Any person chosen should probably be pre-Reformation. Post-Reformation people bring “definitions” of their own to the table, which might create a similar situation to the one we have with Dominion.
5. Things should be naturally occurring and should ideally communicate at least two of our commitments (physically or metaphorically).

These 5 points are the central focus as we move forward with our name change.  Please continue to pray for the Board of Dominion as the final decision is made.
