Humor, Analogy, and Metaphor in Teaching

From the Midnight Oil boys –
  • …metaphor makes the message easier to understand.
  • …metaphor is the glue that makes the message stick.
  • When we use metaphors from the culture, and do the hard work of redeeming them, they become reminders of the Gospel.
  • The challenge for worship screen producers is to learn to think in image instead of just text.
  • If we want to reach the world we live in, we must become students of the culture.
The greatest thing by far is to be a master of metaphor. – Aristotle

The artist must say it without saying it. – Duke Ellington
