Speaker: Aaron Reynolds
Topic: Celebrating God’s Story

  • “The problem with teaching is we have negative baggage that we bring when we think about the Word.”

  • “While I may be okay if my daughter doesn’t fall in love with times tables, I’m not okay if she doesn’t fall in love with Jesus.”

  • “What if we taught so that kids’ minds were blown because of the life change the verses could make?”

  • “When Jesus made stuff happen and made it unforgettable, that was him teaching.”

  • “We should look at teaching and think it means making stuff happen, to make God’s Word unforgettable.”

  • “What if we taught as if we remembered that God’s Word really happened?”

  • “The problem with our ‘teaching’ is we often stop with biblical literacy and head-knowledge and we don’t move past there to heart-knowledge.”
