I have spent this afternoon listening to presentations on “Christian Disicpleship Curriculum” and am bored silly. But “this will be on the test” means that I sorta had to pay attention. (Good doodling fodder, though.)
However, this class was good for something. It made me realize two things…
1) If what was presented was “the best” of what is available in discipleship, it is no wonder that people vote with their empty seats when they see what is offered.*
2) I would like to attend any class by Presbyterian Gal! (Even though her curriculum commentary was not what the institution originally wrote… she made me laugh. hard. Not quite so hard that milk can out my nose… but close.)
*P.S. To wit: the “NOT FUNNY” quote of the day from Nicky Gumbel of “The Alpha Course,” who jokingly suggesting that the downfall of the Anglican church and the rise of women priests are related. And no, the people in the video didn’t laugh, either.
