the rhythm of learning

Rythm and practice #2

Learn: We seek to practice learning by devoting at least 1 focused time of learning, from Christ, through scripture each week.

Jesus says, take my yoke upon you and learn form me for I am gentle and humble at heart and you will find rest for your souls” (Matt. 11:29). Learning from Jesus can take a variety of forms but scripture is the primary text we seek to learn through (though not limited to that). God’s Word is living and active (Heb. 4:12); useful for shaping and molding us and therefore we desire to sit under it and allow it to teach us. Consider the following passages to contemplate the dynamic power of God’s word: (Deut 11:18-21; Psalm 119; Luke 6:47-48; Col 3:16; Heb 4:12).

How do you learn best?

BJ,
I know that I have a great deal to learn on this new adventure, but I'm happy to have fellowship with the people that attended the conference this weekend. My head is still buzzing with all that was discussed. I still remember when Ian came home one day about 4 years ago and said - "Hey, we have a name!" I asked "What do you mean?""Our church, our life...it's called emergent! We're not ALONE!"
That is a wonderful thing to know.

I learn best when things are punctuated with song.
