Seminary Students are Just like Preschoolers

This week I am teaching twice a night for the VBS our church is doing.

I’ve noticed an interesting similarity between preschoolers and seminary students:

During a teaching lesson, both tend to raise their hands to say something completely unrelated to the teacher’s (or professor’s) point. It is (I’m guessing) because in their minds their particular contribution is absolutely vital for everyone else to hear.*

*Note:  seminary students often use a subtle level of sophistication that preschoolers haven’t learned yet. They will phrase their statements like questions, because by the time you are in seminary it is generally understood that making random statements in a class session is immature.*

*Some seminary students still do this, though.
