From the editor
Learning and being Lutheran go together like strawberries and cream, snow and boots, organs and hymns. That’s why the May The Lutheran Witness discusses education both in and out of school.
From learning science, math and history so that we can use those topics as segues to discuss Christ’s gifts to recognizing the importance of the parents’ job of teaching the faith to their children to what lay people can — and ought to! — expect their pastor to instruct them, this issue helps outline what the Lord has to teach at every turn.
We learn how to dissect the Bible, the Psalms, the Old Testament, and the Gospels, and we get to hear firsthand from parents using different styles of instruction and education with their children. We work through how our choices matter and why learning does stop just because we’ve graduated from college.
In each of these articles — focused on education, teaching, learning, growing — we discover that our Lord has given us a big, fascinating world and it’s all ours to dig into, to explore, to learn about, to discover. So let’s dive in!
