It was crazy weather outside, but nature gave me some great ideas.
In the morning, as I delivered a lecture on the Book of Jeremiah, it started snowing! It only lasted for about 15 minutes. In the afternoon, while I attempted to answered questions on heaven, loving God, and where all animals and plants fit into the picture of the afterlife, the sun shone brightly strong, with occasions of wind sweeping into the classroom.
For my scripture class, I want to bring the practice of Lectio Divina (Divine Reading) and find something else to do while the computer keeps failing us. For my morality class, now that we are in the unit of creation, I want to share with them the experience of meditating with nature. What better way to address these ideas than to take the classroom outside.
I heard it’s supposed to be sunny on Friday, so we will see how it goes!
By the way, my lunch, chiles rellenos (stuffed poblano peppers) was filling and spicy but just needed a bit more salt, haha.
