Sample of integrating U.S. history with theology?

His240 Progressive Era and Reform, 2-7-14

Today in class, I had what seemed an inspiration … or was it? I found a construction-paper bunny lying near and underused overhead projector. The reading was from a primary documents collection on the election of 1912. I had an in-class assignment for them to write about: compare the Theodore Roosevelt speech which ended with “We stand at Armageddon, and we battle for the Lord” with Woodrow Wilson’s speech which used “Give us this day our daily bread” to talk about wages and other things threatened by unchecked monopolies. Compare these two speeches theologically.

Then the “inspiration”: the Easter Bunny (above in photo) is asking the comparative question …

It was an inspiration, wasn’t it? (Well, the Easter Bunny amused the students as they were working on the question …)
