Finding Faith

  • The ancient Greek philosopher Socrates once said, “I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think.”  This became known as the Socratic Method, a teaching method where a question is posed and the students direct and control the discussion of it.  I am a big fan of this method, as it makes the students think for themselves and develop their own ideas, solutions, and theories.  It is a method I use when discussing faith, and a method of which I have received positive feedback, from group participants, when ministering.  This method allows the listeners to participate and the speaker to learn through this feedback from these listeners.  The Socratic Method is a win-win method of learning; learning and not teaching, as both parties, the listener and speaker, can learn from each other.
