I had a follow-up thought on the Mario Bros Discipleship post on meeting people where they are in biblical difficulty.
The evidence for the bible having adaptive multi-faceted learning is evidenced by when an entire church is lectionary-based in its curriculum or studies the same scripture on Sundays. When the children, the youth, the adults, and the worship service all reflect on the same scripture, you get tons of conversations about it.
But then it leads to what I call “the third conversation” when a family drives home. They’ve talked about the scripture in the Sunday School, they’ve heard it reflected in church, and then when they drive home they get the third conversation of “how did your class handle it” and all ages are able to participate and consider new things. I wonder what new information and education comes from that third conversation…
Thoughts? Have you done total-church Christian education based on the same scripture?
