On our LinkedIn Group a young lady that just graduated in Dec 2010 with a degree in religious studies asked for feedback on her "resume." This is what I wrote:
As the Instructor of Harsh Reality (and since you asked) you really don't have a resume. You're a new college graduate with a history of good grades in a niche degree in a tough economy. You are going to have to make your own way or accept an entry-level position in a company that will take you on to prove…Continue

I’ve come to the realization that I need to make an adjustment in the layout and presentation of this process. In this step I’m attempting to imagine a committee or group that would support each of the seven steps and the process of forming these groups and developing the leaders of these groups. But I guess I hadn’t thought this far ahead when I started because the seven-step process that I laid out includes a step called “Conversion”. This, obviously, isn’t something that you would…
Now we turn to the most exciting part of this whole process.

Last week a fellow instructor, where my husband is a professor, suffered the loss of a nephew who died in Afghanistan.

Since this couple had some idea of how to proceed with a funeral, they were asked by the young soldier’s family to do all the planning and arrangements for the service and burial of their son who died in military action. This couple did go ahead and…Continue
I think it is time for a quick reminder of our process and where we are. There are seven basic parts to the Evangelization process at the parish level and they are:
3. Pre-Sacramental Education
5. Post-Sacramental Education
6. Faith Milestones
7. Ministry Formation
Last post we finished with step 4, Sacraments, so today I will address Post-Sacramental Education. This covers that long…Continue
