It’s hard to believe that summer is over, and all over the country young people are going back to school. It seemed like a good time to turn to the topic of teaching and learning. Life is a journey, and we never stop learning. Sometimes we want to learn something new because we’re interested and intrigued; other times, learning seems to be forced upon us –we have to familiarize ourselves with new technology, navigate around a new area, or learn how to deal with a health concern. Learning doesn’t just happen in school. Teaching doesn’t have to be an academic exercise, either. Parents and grandparents are teachers by virtue of their life experience. Difficult situations teach us lessons we may not want to learn. Relationships teach us how to get along with others –those who are like us, and those who are different.
So I am hoping this month, the Lutheran ladies will post about what they are learning and who or what is teaching them. They may want to blog about their Bible studies. They may also blog about life experiences that have taught them important truths. What is the most important lesson you have learned? Who or what was your best teacher? Who have you taught? Do you enjoy learning? What is the difference between knowledge and wisdom? All of these questions are food for thought.
As always, the ladies are free to go off topic and post about the things that are close to their hearts. We always want to be open to God’s leading. He loves you and so do I. Happy blogging!
