THE PROCESS OF LEARNING: persons-in-community

During my think-walk this morning, I began to gather some threads into a cohesive whole:
Church is necessarily persons-in-community. In a teaching-learning context, this means in every learning situation both the individual persons (in all their diversity) and the connected community (in all its unity) are held in balance as dual foci.

Certainly, the content of each course of study is critical--this is not to be denied--but the skills required of persons-in-community are equally critical. The methods available on the "methodological menu" and the process by which these methods are chosen and implemented must hold these twin foci in tension.
