Andrew Kern – The Way, the Truth, The Life

“Christ is the note in which – he’s the key in which the whole cosmos sings. The angels sing in the key of Christ, and we should too. And when we aren’t willing to think, for whatever reason, when we aren’t willing to think according to our capacity, which for none of us is very great, but if we’re not willing to think according to our capacity then we have to consider the possibility that it’s because we don’t believe that Jesus is the truth, which he claimed to be – “The Way, The Truth, and The Life.”

Andrew Kern – “3 Basic Skills”

Andrew Kern – “3 Basic Skills”

“So the three basic skills that we have to be teaching then are our first, attention – how to pay attention, and how to do it for a long time, remembering that paying attention doesn’t mean being manipulated to attend to, you know, to hyper stimulate the senses, so you can’t escape. That’s not paying attention. Attention means to “stretch toward” something. It involves the will. And then there’s there’s memory, and there’s imitation. And if you can teach children how and what to imitate and how and what to memorize and to pay attention, which is what imitation and and memory depend on, then you’re on your way. You’re doing what is most important for your child, especially if you’re focused on the, true the good, and the beautiful.”
