The Activating Attitude of a Christian Educator
Languages of publication
Activating is considered one of the important educational functions. One can mention here theater or expressive animation, social-cultural or cultural animation, animation of one’s free time and holidays, as well as animation as a technique used for work in a group. The animating attitude does not mean a special initiative on the part of the educator. It is understood as his/her way of life and of being active. By some acts the educator reflects love towards life, giving life, care for its development, care for a man’s good and happiness, especially a young man’s. A Christian educator should care about creating room inside the educated group for young people’s active participation in making decisions that will determine the direction, in which the life of the community will go. The involvement of the Christian educator is not a usual outward activeness, but it issues from the awareness that the Divine Kingdom on earth is in the man’s hands.
