Church

Show Your Work Friday

This Sunday I’m talking to our Confirmation class about the doctrine of Creation. It is essentially the module I made for this last year, although I added an emphasis here and there to respond to the questions this group of students is actually asking.

The question I always want to be asking with Confirmation curricula is: does it clarify faith? It’s not exactly a goal to persuade. It’s more a goal to clarify claims, to highlight confusions, remove obstacles, and welcome doubt; 13 year-old atheism doesn’t bother me at all, as long as the God they’re saying doesn’t exist is actually the one their church worships.
