“the Holy Spirit…
will teach you all things and remind you of everything…”
John 14:26 (NIV)
I well recall a couple of history teachers I had during my formal education. One was the most boring person I have ever met. “Monotone Malcom” we would call him. He droned on endlessly in class and many times each lecture my hand would finally draw a wiggly line as I went to sleep. If he could have bottled his style and marketed it as a cure for insomnia he would have made a fortune.
The other outstanding professor of history I had was animated and powerful. He would wave his arms like a windmill, shout here and whisper there, as he described the scenes he was seeking to get into our heads. He would have the heroes of the battle running up and down the lecture room aisles as the battle seesawed back and forth. It was sensational stuff and we loved it.
