Morphing Curriculum

The last few days I've been working on how to introduce teenagers to the teleological perspective.

What a challenge - cutting this thing into small enough chunks that they can digest! Heather suggested supplementary videos on the website to give the students more detail over a longer period of time. Great idea Heather - I'm gonna do it....

I've been focusing on the postmodern mindset today. I think I'll use Bittersweet Symphony as one example of the despair and downward spiral that a shapeless view of history can lead to.

Fun stuff!

Hey Sounds great!! I cant wait to hear some of the conversations that you are having. You are really impacting a generation with these types of conversations! Good Luck!

Thanks Dustin! We'll see about the overall impact - so far I've only had a few interesting discussions with leadership folks that touched on the teleological perspective.

Next week I should get a shot at some of our students - we'll see if this stuff can be taught to teenagers...

You guys might remember to pray for our teens - that God would open their hearts and minds to a newer and more productive way of thinking about Him and the past, present and future for the whole world.

I'll post reactions next week!
