“God and Churchill”
We are honored to have as our speaker, Jonathan Sandys, great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill. Many of you know Jonathan as a member of our club. He will speak on his new book, “God and Churchill.” We will have copies for sale, which Jonathan will autograph. A portion of the book proceeds will be donated to our club.
Like me, many of you have been to Churchill’s birth place at Blenheim Palace outside Woodstock, west of London, and to his burial place nearby at St. Martin’s Church, Bladon. Also, many of us have visited various other sites in England with which he is associated.
We should all look forward to hearing Jonathan’s words of tribute to his great-grandfather. This will be a moving experience for our club.
Bill Lee, 2015-2016 Program Chair
Jonathan Sandys is an experienced public speaker focusing on the leadership skills of his great-grandfather, Sir Winston Churchill.
Jonathan’s main focus is on business executives and their workforces, educational establishments, and non-profits. Focusing on the skills his great-grandfather acquired and practiced throughout his life, he helps shape tomorrow’s leaders and gives guidance to those wanting to improve their current leadership abilities.
Churchill’s leadership was based on courage, faith, and integrity. Jonathan’s book: “God and Churchill,” deals with the “faith” aspect and presents evidence that strongly supports Churchill's own belief that “Divine Intervention” not only directed, but protected him throughout his life.
Jonathan's mission is to continue the amazing legacy Sir Winston left the world, and work with present and future generations to inspire the great leadership of courage, faith and integrity employed by his great-grandfather throughout his tumultuous life.
"History honours my great-grandfather as a hero, but despite the accolade, the world today has forgotten many of the vital lessons he taught and the prophetic warnings he shared."
“We who bear the mantle of being descended from those who have made history are in a unique position to connect past and present, continuing the legacy entrusted to us with humanity and humility. In devoting his life to educating young and old about the life of his great-grandfather, Jonathan Sandys is fulfilling that role well.”
