Welcome to Week Four of Stories on the Journey! Thanks for all of the great stories you’ve shared so far! Betty from Arizona sums it up pretty well:
Thanks for sharing these inspiring stories that keep me motivated to continue facilitating adult religious education at my parish!
In case you missed the stories, here they are:
- Week One: How Did I Get Into This?
- Week Two: Kids Say/Do the Darndest Things
- Week Three: Touching the Sacred
Our topic for Week Four is “Oopsies! I Goofed!” Share a brief story (in the Comments box below) – just one or two paragraphs – describing a time when your lesson plan didn’t quite work out as you planned and what you learned from the experience. Then, return each day this week to read others’ stories and to comment on them if you wish. You can also go back and comment on stories from previous weeks.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you! I’ll start the parade with a story of one of my less-than-successful moments below.

P.S. Here’s a prayer request from Betty who commented above:
I live in Sierra Vista, Arizona. Since Sunday afternoon over 15,000 acres have burned. As of Weds. p.m. 40 houses were destroyed. People have been evacuating daily depending on the wind conditions. Please pray we get a miracle of rain eventhough our monsoon season does not start until July. We are so grateful for the firefighters and those extending shelter and other basic necessities of life. Thank you. Betty
