I found this quote and wanted to record it somewhere. I thought my blog would be a good place since that will give everyone else the chance to read it too!
"If education is a matter of self-realization and man is the image of God, then how important the gospel is in moulding that self. To the timid, the self is a refuge, a retreat from the world; to the bold, the self is a strategy to engage it.
We have to venture outward into experience; then the outward experience brings us back into a new self-knowledge. That is the essence of education, best undertaken with a companion called faith." (David P. Gardener, "Religious Growth: A Fourth ‘R’ in Higher Education," New Era, Sep 1976, 41)
