Legacy 2006

Washington, DC Briefing Highlights Legacy is continuing to gain momentum as an effective “behind-the-scenes” force impacting culture through political and social action. The 2006 Washington, DC Briefing entitled, For Such A Time As This...Compassion, Politics, Impact, was our most action-oriented gathering to date.Those in attendance were stretched in their thinking about the world and how we might function even better in it as compassionate conservatives.

Pre-Conference Forum - The Great Experiment For the first time Legacy offered a special pre-conference forum discussion on a curriculum entitled, The Great Experiment: Faith and Freedom Tom Vegh - Legacy co-founder, in the American Republic, with Executive Board member, 2006 Dr. Os Guinness and Washington, DC Briefing The Honorable J. Douglas Chairman Holladay.This was a great chance for a small group to actively discuss the genius of the American experiment and the framers’ understanding of how it might be sustained. Legacy members are encouraged to review this curriculum for enhanced understanding on the founding of the American Republic. It is available in a paperback book format through www.ttf.org. Dr. Os Guinness

2006 Washington, DC Briefing Highlights

(continued from page 1)

After welcoming remarks from Legacy co-founder Tom Vegh, the opening evening program began with a sneak preview of the upcoming Walden Media movie on the life of the British reformer, William Wilberforce. Legacy board member, Micheal Flaherty, co-founder and president of Walden Media gave introductory remarks. Continuing with the British human rights and advocacy theme, no one could have prepared us for the keynote address by Baroness Caroline Cox (former Deputy Speaker of the House of Lords). Her passion, candor and charm drew everyone into the world of fighting for human rights, learning more about atrocities in our world and the mobilization of compassionate help for the suffering. Then a surprise visit and address from Purpose Driven Life author, Rick Warren, made the evening complete. The following day was spent with a panel of experts in the compassion and social justice realms, all relaying their own personal experiences on how they have seen change occur. The panel was moderated by Don Eberly (former Deputy Assistant to President George W. Bush and civil society advocate) who is widely regarded as one of the architects of President Bush’s compassionate conservative agenda. At lunch between panel discussions Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist addressed attendees. We were privileged to hear from two sitting Governors - Mitt Romney (MA) and Haley Barbour (MS), and the Legacy Ladies shared High Tea with Susan Allen, wife of Senator George Allen. The closing “political” day highlighted several of our endorsed candidates for the 2006 election cycle - Senator Rick Santorum, Senator Jim Talent, Congressman Mark Kennedy, and Lt. Governor Michael Steele. Senator John Thune opened the day sharing insights from his own election experience, commenting on the support and encouragement he received from Legacy. As always the overall highlight of the Washington, DC Briefing were the great times of interaction and opportunities for friendships to develop and grow with other fellow Legacy members. ★
