New Blog Post: on Teaching about Jesus in Public School

Well, today marks the completion of my first year of teaching the Christian Living/Education course in one of the Lacombe public schools.  I had the privilege of teaching the New Testament to a group of engaging grade six students.  I accepted this teaching assignment with the hope and intention of being able to introduce these students to Jesus via the New Testament gospels, and to build meaningful relationships with them.  And I’m pleased to report that with God’s help and blessing, this happened.  I can honestly say that I enjoyed this ministry.  In fact, it has been one of the highlights of my year.  I always looked forward to seeing the teacher and students, and I always left feeling like the Lord had worked among us.  It was as if we were walking the Emmaus Road (Luke 24) together, and we discovered Jesus on the way!  As I begin to debrief this ministry, it’s obvious to me that this is a golden opportunity to reach out and enfold people for Jesus, and to make disciples for him.  Thanks be to God!
