Right and Wrong

I took the photos with my iPhone, so they are not the best. And for some reason when I upload them to blogger, they will not turn the correct way. No matter what I do. Just to let you know that I'm not just trying to mess your vision. My iPhone is.

I often tell my Confirmation class that there are few right and wrong answers when it comes to religion. You pretty much have to work things out between yourself and God.

Yesterday, their assignment was to create a poster that displayed what they believed the Reign of God to look like. These are what they came up with:

Dana and Chris*, Good.

Laurie and Nathan, Good.

Daniel and Rebecca, "Okay, you remember how I told you there were no right and wrong answers. Yeah. I was wrong. There are some wrong answers. This is a great example."

Can you see the people swearing at each other? The knife fight? The bombs? But note how the houses and streets are perfect.

Apparently, Daniel's view of the Reign of God is an episode of Weeds.

*As always, all names have been changed to protect the not so innocent.


  1. Top that question, I just might (maybe not, but possibly) leave a blank poster, saying it is a state of mind with no image attached to it. What would your grade be, then?

  2. And is that a zombie?

    I suppose they could have misheard the question. Maybe they thought you said

    "Create a poster that illustrates why we NEED the reign of God."

  3. Minka - I actually don't grade them. The object of the whole exercise is to allow them to explain what they think and learn from one another.

    So yours would be fabulous.

  4. Uh-oh...someone keep their eye on Daniel...

  5. It's nice to know that on the other side of the planet, there's a little boy just like mine. And my kid isn't the only "that kid" out there. :)

  6. Daniel has a future in video game development.

  7. I thought you would be done with the confirmation class by now. However, I can see some of these kids may not be passing!

  8. Whoa! The words!!
    tina :)
    p.s. tagged you! :)

  9. Once one of my baby brothers drew a picture of Jesus in Sunday School. FIne, right? Wrong - his Jesus was peeing.

  10. I dunno. Methinks they have some valid points.

    But I'm kind of contrary that way.


Comments are much appreciated! I love to hear the nice and clever things you have to say.
