PRACTICE TO PERFECTION
We believe that we learn by practice. Whether it means learning to teach by practicing teaching or learning to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. In each, it is the performance of a dedicated precise set of acts, physical or intellectual, from which comes shape of achievement, a sense of one's being, and a satisfaction of spirit.
“Practice makes man, in some area, an athlete of God. Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.”
