Comments for Week 3 of our online retreat for catechists are less numerous but no less profound than previous weeks. Thanks and keep them coming. Don’t forget that folks are taking vacation time so we can expect “voices” to come and go over the course of this online retreat. Also, some topics are easier to write about than others. You’re welcome at any time to share your thoughts, ask questions of me or of one another, or talk to one another by leaving your comments. To do so for this week – week 3 – click here.
In the meantime, I have something for you. Over the years, I’ve heard many people talk about using The Prince of Egypt to help teach about Moses and the Exodus/Passover story. It’s a very engaging video but requires much clarification over discrepancies it has with Scripture (lots of poetic license taken!). To that end, I’ve put together a worksheet that can be used to engage students with both the film and the Bible accounts. Enjoy!
