Lots of stories in the sports pages today about Brett Favre getting the “itch” to return to football after announcing originally that he planned to retire.
Around this time of the summer, I get the “itch” for the religious education year to begin! Being off (from teaching) for May and June and having a wonderful vacation in Marco Island, Florida, works wonders for restoring one’s energy. Don’t get me wrong…I still look forward to having July and August off from teaching. However, the “itch” is a general urge to be “in the game” again. I look forward to growing as a catechist in the coming year and trying new things. Of course, I’ll talk about those experiences here and I hope to hear from you about your experiences as well.
I hope you are enjoying your summer. Anyone want to offer some advice for summer reading especially for catechists?
