+  Christ in the Classroom: Lesson Planning for the Heart and Mind

  • Description: "If the goal of catechesis is to cultivate an encounter with Christ, why do religious educators spend so much time focused almost exclusively on ideas and not experiences? The reason is that many have never been shown a method that inspires the heart while also instructing the mind.
