Just About Finished…

Well, I’ve come a long way.  I have completed and posted my Teacher Reflection on Assessment as well as my reflection on Next Steps.  Just need to keep looking at and commenting on classmate blogs, and somewhat prepare for the informal final presentation.  This blog is like a work room for me–it has everything I need to create arts integrated lessons, except for online access to that wonderful book we all got the first semester.  All in all, I’ve learned a lot.

    Kate- What a nice surprise to see you on Thursday. I can’t stop thinking about our conversation. I am intrigued by the class you teach. I was reminded how my growing in understanding of a power greater than myself and the conscious contact with that power has included awareness and developing of the senses. Spirituality through the senses!!! The color purple is of the highest vibration in the energy scale and so it is the color priest and ministers where on the most special of Sunday celebrations. This is just one parallel of many that seekers of something other than self share incommon. I want to know more. Namaste!

      Thank you for your kind words! I really wish we’d had time to shoot the breeze. I looked for you, but you were gone. In case you’re curious, check out my website at http://www.goodshepherdcatechesis.com. Below is one of my favorite quotations, written by the amazing woman who has been honoring the spiritual life of young children for over 50 years. (She is in her 90’s now.)
      When wonder becomes a fundamental attitude of our spirit, it will confer a religious character to our whole life, because it makes us live with the consciousness of being plunged into an unfathomable reality. If we are disposed to reflect on reality in its complexity, then it will reveal itself to be full of the unexpected, aspects we will never succeed in grasping or circumscribing; then we will be unable to close our eyes to the presence of something or someone within it that surpasses us.
