Adventures in Teaching VIII: Fin!

As this summer session of religious formation class winds down I reflect on the past two weeks and all of the fruits found within. The implication that one cannot learn from those younger than them is a dangerous misnomer and one I would encourage you to shed if you believe such things. The blessings I have received over the past nine days have been numerous and beautiful.

Sunday Reflection IV

For the next two weeks, I'll be teaching a group of 7th graders catechism at my church each morning. Initially, when I agreed to do this, I had a moment right afterward of "what did I just agree to?" However, that feeling soon passed and made way to excitement, discovery and lots of questions. It's made me look back on my faith, what I learned as a child, what I've learned as an adult and what I wish I knew then what I know now.
