Write a personal reflection on what a Christian worldview means to you. Drawing on the reading by Thomson (2012) ‘Scriptures, worldview and education’, comment on a statement made by the author “I probably cannot tell you what my worldview is until I find myself in the midst of a crisis” (p. 23). What does the statement mean to you? How do you interpret it? In your reflection, please ensure you address the following:
- What is a Christian worldview? Please use at least one academic source to back up your definition.
- What does it mean to you? How relevant is it to you?
- Comment on Thomson’s quote as indicated above.
- Conclude by analysing the ways in which we as educators can getter a better understanding of the biblical story (please also draw on Thomson’s reading).
