Ethiopian Coffee = Hospitality = A New Understanding of Christ Centred Learning

Blog Archives:

This blog was written by Learning Leader Elco Vandergrift who is working alongside co-leader Rudy deGroot with Ethiopian educators as part of the Living and Leading the Biblical Story in Christian Schools Walking Together project.

Greetings from Ethiopia.  Rudy, Mituku, and I are sitting at a roadside cafe,  enjoying our last cup of Ethiopian coffee. Without a doubt, this is the best coffee in the world.  The richness of the coffee is only surpassed by  the richness of new relationships with our co-learners in Christian Education.

Last night we were told that one of the workshop participants was thinking about this idea of " seeing the Biblical story - living the Biblical story" for 3 nights in a row... Three nights in row!!!

Rudy and I can't remember the last time we had 3 sleepless nights thinking about the vision for Christian schooling? We're not sure what she was thinking. Was it the call to live the story...not just see it? And that  he now can now invite her students into this way of living - into a better story?  

This is just one story that surfaced in the midst of questions and experiences where "living the Biblical story" in the Ethiopian education context were explored.
