Transcript of Chapter 3:
Faith That Refuses To Be
Children prefer to learn form witnesses not teachers.
We do not take our faith from those who use authority to impose it on us.
We need to experience the faith first hand, or hear others experience from those we most relate to.
We need to have the youth feel the dynamic, creating , and saving hand of god first-hand and within human experience.
We cannot give others what we do not possess.
Many individuals will follow the idea" seeing is believing", disregarding the silent, hidden, and existing presence of God.
"Faith is the deepest concern of our Catholic educational communities today."
"Faith is always a matter of encounter and response."
"The foundational purpose of a Catholic faith education is to continually remind a new generation of believers that faith is not a matter of comprehending God, but one of God apprehending us in love."
"We are saying: I have seen something good, true and powerful in you, and now i have faith that you will be these thins for me in the future, regardless of the change in situation, location or time."
"Catholic educators make spreading the
faith a priority."
"We must not merely rumble through ritual routine, but we must rock with" passion."
" What is the essence of what we wish to transmit to the next generation? The answer is actually quite simple, Christian faith."
We need to teach our students that God exists in the ordinary, not just the extraordinary.
Our children are not very likely to
accept faith as rights imposed upon
them from the outside
Teaching the ability to encounter the transcendent
Beginning with the ordinary
Prod children to look at what happens
s in their experiences
Faith and life are inseparable with Catholic education.
A personalized introduction to God
1. What are some ways that we as educators can “rock with passion”?
2. How have you seen teachers and principals bring Jesus into students’ everyday lives?
3. What would you do if a student came to you and said they did not really feel Jesus’ presence in their life or that they did not know where to look?
