Did you know that our education often fails to match our profession?
Only about 46 percent of college graduates work in the field they learned in school.
One study found that of those enrolling in a course of study, only about five percent will be in it two years after graduation.
The false promise of any educational system, including disciplemaking, is full equipment for the road ahead. For me the real promise of my education was that I would come away knowing how and where to research. That paired well with an ability to teach myself (which I think I learned in school—but it may have more to do with self-motivation, I’m never sure).
So what do you wish they would have taught or told you before you got into the ministry position where you find yourself?
