Holy Week

This Holy Week, how will you choose to reflect your faith in your world?

I know some of you are saying “I do that every week.”  Good.  But this week, as we make special reflection, how will you do so in your classes?

This makes me contemplate my own work at two different schools, one a large state school and the other a small liberal arts Christian school.  I open one with snarky sports references, the other I often open with prayer.  As we embrace the holiday and its delicious traditions (mmm pie), we must also remember that the holiday is a remembrance of the greatest sacrifice ever made.

What I’m trying to say, without preaching to the choir too much, is that as Christians and historians, we need to be ever reflecting on our faith.  As we teach, think, and learn, we must keep focus on our faith not as a sidebar or interpretive framework, but as a life calling.  We are Christians and historians.  This week is important to us because it is the mark in which the Supernatural intervened into our natural humanity… and historically changed the world forever.
