The wisdom of what a person says is in direct proportion to his progress in learning the Holy Scriptures—and I am not speaking of intensive reading or memorization, but real understanding and careful investigation of their meaning. Some people read them but neglect them; by their reading they profit in knowledge, by their neglect they forfeit understanding.
-- On Christian Teaching, Augustine of Hippo
Christian Education is like silly putty.
That’s the thought I had one day as I began thinking about the beginning of September and the beginning of all of our Church’s fall programming.
Now the thought didn’t happen naturally. I was pondering writing an article on Christian Education that would be useful for youth and young adults. And I was stuck. Other than saying Sunday school and youth group is important, how do I write about Christian Education in a fun way?
Then my eyes drifted around my office until they landed on a bag of silly putty.
