Daily Mug Shot

August 17, 2009

You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives. ~Clay P. Bedford
As the mother of young children, I have “enjoyed” many episodes of Curious George, the fun-loving monkey whose adventures broaden his world. Moon Monkey Coffee is a lot like George –exploring unchartered territory, meeting new friends, and enjoying life.
With a curiosity like that, who can keep the Monkey from learning? This fall, that is exactly what the Monkey and I will be doing. We, collectively under my name and my Sallie Mae account, have enrolled at Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Ky. To earn “our” Masters in Biblical Studies.
In exchange for feeding his curiosity, the Monkey has promised to keep me company (and awake) during my late night study sessions and early morning lectures. Together we’ll conquer the deep theological discussions with new friends. In the end, I will use my degree to become a college professor; the Monkey will probably just use his to impress his favorite Shine.FM female artists!
You can join us here every Monday to hear about our latest adventures and what we’ve learned. You can also follow some of those deep (and not so deep) theological discussions at my personal blog. In the process, maybe you will also catch a little of the Monkey’s curiosity!
