The Essence of a People

Language expresses something of the inner spirit of a nation, something of its very essence.  The South is mainly of Anglo-Saxon origin, and if we would recover again the noble spirit of our ancestors (expelling the Puritan-Yankee spirit that indwells us now), it would behoove us to learn as much of the Old English language of our forefathers as we can.  A good place to start is Dr Mark Atherton's guide.  Or have a listen to the model prayer of Our Lord.  You may read along as you listen if you'd like.
