Explain That to Me

Christianity is filled with enormous concepts wrapped in an ancient setting that is relevant today.

The struggle is getting those foundational ideas across to the people so they see the relevance. As followers of Jesus, we need to not only know what we believe but also be able to explain it to others.

One rule of thumb is to ask yourself, “Could I explain it so that an elementary-aged child would understand it?”

This challenge will push you to think through your language and the big words often associated with faith. We will be required to take concepts and attach them to a word picture to make them easy to understand. Analogies, object lessons, and stories become necessary to show others exactly what we mean.

Christianity will always be deeply intellectual, but remember that CS Lewis could argue with professors logically and still teach children through Narnia.
