Tuesday night with Rebekah 2.6.2018
This week the children recounted their enjoyment over the past several weeks as they had the opportunity to learn new subjects in varying degrees such as math, psychology, German culture and language, medical hygiene, chemistry and biology. We believe that children are vessels to be poured into and academic knowledge is one avenue. We were encouraged to see the excitement on their faces as they learned new things and their vessels were deepened at the same time. We discovered many future biologists, mathematicians and a nurse amongst our future generation.
Through our interactive discussions we probed what genuineness is and what it means to be genuine. The children were encouraged to do everything with a genuine heart and not out of a sense of duty. One example was, that they wrote thank you letters to the featured speakers who came over the past several weeks. They were not assigned this as a duty, they did it spontaneously out of a genuine heart and grateful attitude.
