How To Make Your Communities Better

How To Make Your Communities Better

One Example: Pella, Iowa—We’ll apply this to others later.

We write her history around the square, as the first layer.

From 2011 go south from northwest corner

To 2011 go west from northeast corner

To 1922 go north from southeast corner

To 1847 -> go east from southwest corner

Then we add the second layer, the Heidelberg Catechism’s summation: Guild, Grace, Gratitude, and GoForth+ (the latter, Jeff Harlow)


GoForth+ go south from northwest corner

Gratitude go west from northeast corner

Grace go north from southeast corner

Guilt east from southwest corner

Let us sum up the first two squares.

Something was wrong in Holland, so Domine (Reverend) Scholte and about 00 people came to America, to Pella (‘Pella’ means ‘refuge’—they sought refuge). To 1847. ‘Pella was founded in 1847 when eight hundred Dutch immigrants led by Dominee (Minister) Hendrik (Henry) P. Scholte settled the area.’,_Iowa

They enjoyed life, and built a community for about 100 years—this building and enjoying continues.

In 1922, this history was written to be shared. In 1936 it becan to be shared in a yearly community celebration, Tulip Time. Many visitors come. Tourist come at all times of the year to see Pella, the Historical Village, etc.

Now, in A. D. 2011, we ask this question:
How can this refuge be given to others?

We are in an age of increasing technological benefits, but, as Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy said, any new technology increase the space over which we can operate, decreases the time it takes, but destroys the old community. [Fear not, as travel went from ships and covered wagons, to railroads, and cars, we have lived through that change.]

We see three more Christian principles at work here in How To Make Your Communities Better.
1—The consummation is greater than the creation. That is, as Pella moves along her covenant history, there are greater things.
2—As great Providential gifts are given, we are to give. Pella was given refuge, she should give refuge.
3—We are to become more and more what we are. Personally, a unique image of GodTrinity, with talents to be used. For Pella, she become more and more her name: Refuge.
These 3 are from Pastor Brian Nolder, Christ the Redeemer Church, Pella. (website)

How about your community?

When was it founded (Stuart, Iowa, 1871), and why (the railroad having been built, land could be better used for a better life).
What was the key event to mark when sharing began (Good Egg Days?)
What of your community’s name should be shared as you become more and more your name ( ____________)?

Commission go south from northwest corner

Commune go west from northeast corner

Consecrate go north from southeast corner

Call and Cleanse go east from southwest corner
Let’s add one more layer to our square, before we get to the next stage. It is from the structure of worship at the church pastured by Pastor Nolder. Let’s see how it ‘rhymes’.
A presupposition: History is liturgy (Wayne Larson).

In Pella? Please help us fill out the form on the next page, to participate in PROPR—Participatory Recommissioning Of Pella/Refuge. Thanks!

Christ the Redeemer uses 5 Cs. Call, Cleanse, Consecrate, Commune, Commission. I, Chuck Hartman (website), have put Call and Cleanse together as ridding of guilt, until 1847. Consecrate (the sermon) would be living out the Word from 1922, and continuing. Communion (sharing) begins in 1922 with Souvenir History of Pella (a936, Tulip time).
We are now at the Commissioning stage, how to give refuge, greater than receiving it.
[In Sunday Adelaja’s ‘Church Shift, pages 135-6, he tells how he asks for a show of hands of those who have a project or a talent that they want to use to ‘go about doing good’. He puts hand-raisers into committee(s), to draw up plans and manuals, and had them test it out on a small scale before rolling it out completely.
His church has 2000 (two thousand) of these groups as of late summer 2011.]

In each of these 4 areas, what have been (will be, post 2011) the key events in Pella, and/or your community, in these eras around the square in a memory palace? Categories below are Rosenstock-Huessy’s.

Community (tribe) Business (empire) Religion (Israel) Education (Greece)

Not part of the brochure. Could be on the website(s).
Additional information: Examples of Pella giving more Community—this brochure, help on website and as ministry. More Business, help the unemployed, home business on internet (sic). Religion, covenant here, other ministry help, especially ‘discipling by getting other into the narrative. Education, here we have a definite revolution with home schooling, on-line MIT classes and more, Khan Academy, etc.

TheTitle. An homage to the American philosopher, C. S. Peirce, who wrote a key article, ‘How to Make Your Ideas Clear’ in Popular Mechanics.

Each of these four categories of community (festivals…), business work schedules, marketing calendars…), religion (church year, weekly worship…), education (semesters, degree programs…), has its own calendar.

On communities being destroyed, see Creveld , Barzun’s epilog to From Dawn to Decadence, Nisbet (History of the Idea of Progress, Introduction), and Berman (‘Law and Revolution’ Introduction—the best scholarship:North). Hat tip: GKN These are all speaking of the nation-state system.

On the national revolutions of the West following a pattern of Imperative, Subjective, Narrative, Objective, see Chapter 5 of Gardner’s ‘Beyond Belief’. His complete cross of reality at the end is valuable, and the memory palace above is related to it, though differs.

Jordan’s short ‘Crisis, Opportunity, and the Christian Future’ uses Law, Lyric, Evaluation, Fact as the sequence. His ‘Covenant Sequence in Leviticus and Deuteronomy’ has a 12-stage sequence, ending in the new song of the covenant.

The Heidelberg Catechism is online, the Souvenir History is difficult to find.

Our eBook is for sale here: (when done, link). It elaborates on this process.

We want to help. It’s a refuge giving. Contact us.

For Hartman, his website, were CtR not to do this—or from CtR’s were they To Do this, will emphasize Joint Ventures, for CHH should become more and more what he is, an early innovator of projects.

For Christ the Redeemer, there should be a business plan, but the key thing is that this could be given out to tourists and at Tulip Time, and it spreads the Word of covenant, and the narrative of the Gospel, I believe.

[Things added in pen include copyright notice and AD 2011 also in “Hartman”. Should be a total campaign with YouTube, live streaming, tourist, Tulip Time, website… . The sides of the squares named and the times of the 4x4 for Pella put into time frames, community First Party Politics through Fifth Party politics.]

An example of how rhyming covenant sequences helps.

Take two of them. THEOS and the first 4, 5 words, commandment.

If coming to Pella 1847 is both obeying a Transcendant God and setting up a new Hierarchy (America, not Holland), then living Ethically until 1922 (and continuing) would be next, but what does one do with ‘Oaths and Sanctions’ as the next side of the square?

One goes to the word/commandment about the Sabbath, and realizes that its admonition to give rest fits in with the sharing of Tulip Time and Souvenir History of Pella, so that the Oath part is seen to be more Sanctions—that one should give rest somehow.

One also sees an implication of getting out and coming to the new land, the Transcendant Hierarchy, and of Ethically living there. This implication is that one should give rest, share, or be sanctioned?

As these sequences are piled up more and more, we learn more and more about them individually, in part, totally, and in whole.

Add the genesis and early history of this as a dealing with the trauma of Mom.

Dear Doug:

HTMYCB is a possible solution to part of the FV controversy, for we would narratively disciple all parties, uniting them on what to do going forward--and on whence we have come.

All kinds of communities.

I must get my stuff out. Starting well with a Facebook and CHHC synopsis.

Praise the Lord.

Love in King Jesus,


A Baker's Dozen About Time for Altucher

Time? A baker's dozen things about time. 1--Show me a man's schedule, and I'll show you who he is. 2--Show me a society's calendars, and I'll tell you what she is. 3--Four major calendars are survivals of social orders of the past. 4--Community calendars are tribal. 5--Business/work calendars are from empires. 5--Ecclesiastical calendars are from Israel. 6--Educational calendars are from Greece. 7--To change a society, change her calendar The French Revolution tried it. The Gregorian Calendar is a key. The date of Easter has been much argued over. 8--Linear time/progress in necessary to go forward. 9--Remember time(s), gain the future. The Bible's Fifth Word about honoring your father and mother, expanded, and 'living long and prospering' in the land the Lord gives you. Societally, 10--There are chiasms and 'formings and fillings'. 11--Rosenstock-Huessy's 'Multiformity of Man' discusses these best. Free online at 12--And Gary North.

The Bakers Dozen item: Time and times are spoken/written into existence. Peace treaties, times of marriage, imago Dei.

Charles Howard Hartman on Facebook

Should have added: Conduct time? 1--As railroad conductor. 2--As electricity transformer, for when a good man dies, great power is released into the field of time. 3--As an orchestra conductor, the score being written.

History in 150 Words

Someone has a nice exegesis of the 4 Gospels in which he says that each one addresses a particular social order--tribe, empire, Israel, Greece. In addition, they make a circle, in that the end of Matthew leads into the beginning of Mark, and so on, such that the end of John leads back to Matthew. And these social orders remain in layers of calendars. Community, tribal; empires, business/work; Israel, church; Greece, education. This is very wise. And this one says that we now enter a neo-tribal era, where ridding ourselves of the perpetual warfare of the tribe is the key, while keeping the small, enthusiastic groups. We rid ourselves of the worst of the other two already, and Greece should never be an imperative, only a companion.
