Notes: Transformational Rest for Educators

From: Volume 9, Issue 1: Spring 2012, Intergenerational Ministry Pages 194-205

Abstract

In these hectic days of informational superhighways and busy life schedules, Christian educators desiring to teach for transformation often find little time to rest and to be transformed personally. Implementing biblical models of rest, contemplation, and time alone with God could provide a balanced life that would in turn impart this lesson to our students in an integrated manner. Spiritual transformation must first flow from who we are and how we have been transformed by the Holy Spirit. Paul’s Epistle to the Romans encourages Christians to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. Embracing the created design of the rhythms and cycles of life not only changes the way we think, but more importantly how we live and what we teach our students.
