I am back from Tallinn. The “Learning to teach, teaching to learn” conference was inspiring, collegiate and Biblical. What are my reflections?
I will need to keep this report necessarily brief because I’m deep in preparation for the next Athens Institute of Ministry for the UK and Ireland session starting on Saturday 24th September.
You can watch the lessons here: https://tmc.krist.ee/.
1. Conference are worth attending – when they have a clear purpose
2. Conference are worth attending – when there is time for meaningful conversations
3. Conference are worth attending – when you have new experiences
4. Conference are worth attending – when you make new friends
5. Conference are worth attending – when you get below the surface
6. Conference are worth attending – when God is the focus
7. Conference are worth attending – when disagreement is possible
1. Work harder at getting AIM better known
2. Refocus the Apollos group (perhaps see if we can establish more groups)
3. Have deeper teaching-type conversations with others who are interested in teaching
The next AIM module is Christian doctrine. I shall be teaching on Catholicism, the Orthodox church, Protestantism, the prosperity gospel and megachurches. Please pray I do justice to the doctrines of these groups. My terrific teaching colleagues, Douglas Jacoby and Andy Boakye, will be covering other aspects of Christian doctrines.

Please add your comments on this week’s topic. We learn best when we learn in community.
Do you have a question about teaching the Bible? Is it theological, technical, practical? Send me your questions or suggestions. Here’s the email: [firstname.lastname@example.org](mailto:email@example.com).

Keep calm and carry on teaching
