The Perfect Gospel Doctrine Teacher
Someone asked me recently what the qualities of the ideal gospel doctrine teacher would be. Once we got talking about it there seemed to be a middle ground where instruction wouldn’t be too boring, nor too overwhelming. Where class participation was encouraged, but not allowed to run rampant. Where preparation was encouraged by not reading all of the material in class, but you could still follow the lesson if you had a late night with the baby and didn’t read.
As these qualities added up I thought about how important teaching really is, and how little it has to do with intelligence or book knowledge.
