To Cause to Learn

Here's the link to my new podcast, To Cause to Learn: Effective Teaching in the Church.  In this podcast I will talk about a number of important questions about teaching in the church, why it’s important to do it well, and what it means to teach the faith effectively to people of all ages. We’ll cover issues in confirmation, the stages of faith education from the wee ones in preschool all the way up to those spunky teenagers, and how to develop a culture of participation in adult Bible study. I'll explain Bible Inquiry and why it's important.

As you probably know, Hebrew is not easy to translate directly into English. Some Hebrew words can mean multiple different English words or phrases and vice versa. There are multiple Hebrew words we translate into teach or teaching. Some Hebrew phrases more accurately mean to become familiar with, to know, to learn, to correct, to enlighten or shine, or finally, to cause to learn, or LAMAD 

...how on the day that you stood before the Lord your God at Horeb, the Lord said to me, ‘Gather the people to me, that I may let them hear my words, so that they may learn to fear me all the days that they live on the earth, and that they may cause their children to learn so.’ Deut. 4:10

And the Lord commanded me at that time to cause them to learn you statutes and rules, that you might do them in the land that you are going over to possess. Deut. 4:14

With regard to faith education we don't want to simply share information, we want to cause someone to learn about their faith, their God, and His word. But causing to learn means we need to know something about how people learn and how they learn at each age. That's what this podcast is all about.
