Did I Happen to Mention. . .

Took Samuel to his first church-driven CCD program meeting (he'd been getting home-schooled, but until recently the diocese had a requirement that to receive communion children had to attend Church-sponsored CCD--thought it was still in place--signed him up--it isn't.). As I had to be there anyway, I figured I would volunteer. Signed the sheet and five minutes later was whisked away into the fourth grade class to serve as teacher-helper. (I suppose I shouldn't mention that I am ambivalent about this policy as I thought they would at least do fingerprinting, etc. as is common here when serving with either children or the elderly. But didn't really want to go through that hassle either.)

So now I'll help out the fourth-grade teacher. Next year I may be teaching CCD. Anyway, the program is so weak that it won't damage Samuel's education and we'll continue with what we have been doing at home. So next year I'll probably teach grade 3. Not bad for a person used to working with Grade 6 and above. (Predominantly college freshmen, sophmores, and 1st year grad. students). Pray for me!

"Weak" is pretty much how I would characterize every religious ed program I've ever seen, except the ones that were right out "dangerous".

Glad to see that you're volunteering. The Church is in desperate need of good educators who know what they're talking about.

Thanks for giving of your time and talents to help the young ones that don't have the blessing of having parents like you. I have an idea for lesson three... The Code of Hammurabi! I bet you can teach it with all kinds of stories...
