“Someone once told me that you learn the most when you’re teaching,” he said. “I think that’s true. Secondly, community is essential. To know yourself and to be known is a desire we all have. Teaching puts me in a community where I can guide others towards the fulfillment of that desire with the acknowledgement that only God can complete it.”
