This week I am attending an Advanced Catholic Training in which we seek to explain certain aspects of the faith to young people. Today I learned too very important lessons from young people.
The first lesson is a reminder of how - in certain ways - I am very much behind the times. I had pulled out my calendar/planner to check on a couple of dates and placed it near a bottle of DrPepper Then. A few minutes later someone said with a note of surprise, "What is that?!"
Thinking he was referring to the DrPepper Ten, I started to explain when he interrupted, saying something like, "No, that book." He then explained that no one these days keeps a paper calendar.
The second lesson concerns the mind of God. I was helping one of the groups prepare for Mass this evening when I reminded the lector to pay attention to the tone of the reading. After explaining that God was challenging his people I was told, "If God were really angry he would have used caps lock."
