Particular Glories in the Mundane
Presented at the A Contemplation of Glory Conference 2021.
The whole purpose of our teaching should be pointing our students to the Person of God through his creation. Whether we do it through math, science, poetry, literature, history, etc., we look for every opportunity to lead our students to discover the Truth, Goodness, and Beauty of God. Often, we point out the big ideas or big events that show God’s glory. However, God has not seen fit to deliver the majority of his revelation and gifts this way. He has veiled a significant amount of his glory in the mundane and every day. This session with discuss the instructional routines and practices surrounding the process of training our students in habits of thinking that account for this reality.
