Something New!

Welcome to my new blog “The Vine and the Branches.”  I am giving this a try as a way to reach my old and new students with information, inspiration, and encouragement for living your faith.  So many of you have written me beautiful comments expressing how our classes really changed how you thought about God and your faith, but I am keenly aware that if you don’t have a way to stay connected to Jesus (the vine), the seeds that were planted during our 8th grade year can wither and die.

I don’t want to see that happen!

But I am going to need your help to make this work.  I intend to post some things that I think will be helpful, but you have to let me know what you need, what you are struggling with, any questions you might have, etc.

I would also like to post some videos, songs and links to the kinds of things we have done in class so that you can access them whenever you want them.

My Challenge to you …

Go deeper into your faith than you have ever gone before and see what happens.  This song, “All In” by Matthew West is going to be our theme for this school year, but I invite all my past students to take the challenge as well.  Who knows what we could accomplish with God’s help.  Take a listen…
