Learning

Learning

Why do we learn? Spiritual learning is formative: its goal is not academic knowledge but spiritual formation. We pursue learning so we can know the Lord and become more like Christ, for “everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher” (Luke 6:40). Learning is intergenerational, receiving from the previous generation and passing on to the next one. Learning is communal, engaged in dialog together around the Scriptures.
