What if we encouraged those in the pew, as we should in the classroom, to adopt a far more active stance? Imagine a church where the expectations for learning were far higher. People are not expected to simply take things in–but figure things out.

“Wait, Wait … Don’t Tell me!”

Have you ever listened to National Public Radio’s weekly news program, “Wait, Wait … Don’t Tell Me?” I have developed a Christmas edition of this program for students of the Bible.

This should be an enjoyable learning experience.

It seems like we lost a fair measure of both.
