I’ve been preparing for Monday’s chapel talk. The headmaster asked me to talk about the Scripture that they are memorizing this week: John 8:12 “And Jesus said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life.” What a glorious topic! What an enormous topic!
As I sort through my pages of notes hoping to glean 30 minutes of solid, beneficial teaching, I’m asking four big questions about the students:
1. What do they need to know?
2. Why do they need to know it?
3. What do they need to do?
4. Why do they need to do it?
(Thanks, Andy Stanley for helping me to think more strategically…)
