Another moment from being with youth. Confirmation Class. It’s two hours with a dozen sixth, seventh and eighth graders. It’s truly one of the highlights of ministry (and I am serious).
So we are talking about the Ten Commandments. All the things we should do and should not do regarding relationship with God and with one another.
We get around to an exercise. Written out is what Martin Luther had to say in the Small Catechism about each commandment. The youth are then asked to write out what each one means in their own words.
Here comes the question - "what does it mean for number two that we should not practice magic?" We talk about it a little and out comes the quote of the day: "you know, if it’s not good for you, then you just shouldn’t do it!"
Out of the mouths of babes!!!
