When is the best time to stop learning?


School’s back in session in our region. Busses are rolling, teachers are prepped and ready, all so the students can continue learning.  But when does it stop?

Back to school season is a great time for all of us to pause and ponder this question: When should we stop learning?  Does learning end when you receive your diploma?  Does it end when you settle down to raise a family?  When you reach middle age?  When you retire?

The question might sound silly but what’s even sillier is that we can miss out on opportunities to actually help us grow.  Your employer might send you for the latest certification, or your job might require you to accumulate continuing education credits.  But beyond that, what can you to do keep learning?

May I suggest Rooted?  It’s an opportunity to learn the way most of us learn best, not by LISTENING but by DOING.  It’s not for nothing that it’s called the “Rooted Experience.”  You’ll learn how to connect better with God, with your church family, and with your God-given purpose.

If you’ve already taken Rooted, may I ask you to encourage a friend to follow in your footsteps?  Share with them the impact it had on your life.

If you’ve NOT already taken Rooted, may I encourage you to register for the Fall session?  (Click HERE to register.)  It starts next Tuesday, September 12th at 7 pm.  I promise you it will kick-start your learning.  And you’ll never be the same because of it. (Check out what others have said after taking Rooted here.)

I hope to see many of you there.  And regardless of your Rooted engagement this Fall, this is not the time to stop learning.  In the words of another preacher, “If you ain’t dead, you ain’t done.”

-Pastor Mark

P.S. If you missed last weekend we talked about the role of the Holy Spirit in helping us learn.  Check out the podcast HERE.

    I just listened to Mark’s sermon on the power of partnership. It was inspiring! I agree that it can be a powerful force not only within SCC (and all churches), but also within every “community” of which we are a part. I pray that our country becomes a covenant community where every citizen feels God’s love and protection.
