It's All About Jesus!

On my train ride this morning, I saw a marquee for a church that announced, “It’s All About Jesus!”

I realized right then and there that this is the theme of my class this upcoming Monday evening! We’re beginning the unit on Jesus and, in essence, focusing on the notion that, for us Christians, it’s all about Jesus.

By the way, in my last class, one of my students asked, “what’s the difference between Catholics and Christians?” What she really meant was, what’s the difference between Catholics and Protestants, which is something we’re going to learn more in depth later this year. However, for now, it was important to explain that Catholics are indeed Christian. On Monday, we’ll explore the very heart of what it means to be Christian, namely, that it is all about Jesus!

Have a great weekend!
