Alas, I digress. I mentioned, in passing, that I had this course on the life of Jesus to Alejandra, my neighbour, and that same week she came to me and told me she had 3 ready to take it! And off we were.
We meet every Tuesday around 5 p.m. and the end times differs from week to week, depending on the discussion. Presently we are in Book 2 and they are excited about taking all 6 and graduating.
The mix of students in very interesting, one is a very studied and learned Catholic. She is very knowledgeable about the Bible and her faith. Another is, according to her own self-description, a 'bad Catholic'. No, she is not a bad person. She is one who has a faith but doesn't attend mass or fulfil various other requirements of the church. The third student is from an evangelical background. Together we are studying the life of Christ. We are seeking to learn together and not argue over being Catholic or Evangelical. We are learning and growing together. It has been a rich experience for each of us.
