Other than signing your name, who writes in cursive?
The Indiana State Department of Education now allows individual schools to decide whether or not to continue teaching cursive or completely stop teaching it altogether.
Schools that decide to leave cursive behind, may fill the void with current academic disciplines, while others may use this opportunity to replace it with more relevant communication skills like typing.
Either way, the skill of cursive writing has become outdated and archaic.
What has become ‘cursive writing’ in the Church?
Hats-off to the Indiana State Department of Education for reading the cursive writing on the wall.
Cursive writing is archaic.
There is only so much time in a day to learn, and teaching things that are not needed is simply a waste of time. The battle to gain attention and have your message absorbed by the masses is already a challenge. By filling it up with non-essential messages and information, the important information is ignored, missed, or never received in the first place.
The Indiana DOE considered the fact that we live in the information age and we are more susceptible to information overload today, than ever before.
Shouldn’t the Church do the same?
The Indiana DOE has cursive writing, what does the Church have?
- 1+ hour sermons?
- Sunday night service?
- Wednesday night service?
- Sunday School?
- 4-songs, announcements, offering, sermon, shake hands, eat lunch, see you at the next service?
What would you add to the list?
What would you take off?
We need to update how we live.
