The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
The first Christians knew that their participation in teaching, learning and fellowship were essential to deepening and enriching their lives as people of faith. They knew that living and growing in Christ was a lifelong journey which involved study and learning. We also acknowledge this whenever we renew our baptismal promise to take part in these areas of Christian life. Through learning, we build and deepen our relationships with God and one another, grow in our journey of faith, and are transformed into the image of Christ.
