How I Met Your Mother

Context:  I found myself subbing for a senior economics class today (Friday) last period.  In honor of Poem in Your Pocket Day, which was actually yesterday, the economics teacher started the class off with poetry.  After reading a number of poetic verses, the students then had 5 minutes to write their own pocket poem about economics.  Since I was the sub, I joined in with the students.  Here is my pocket poem about economics.

Jesus Cleanses the Temple

One image of Jesus I really really really really really (I can't possibly type enough "reallys") is the super-nice- saccharin-I'll-never-do-anything-to-upset-people Jesus.  It just doesn't fit with scripture.

For example: John 2:13-16
The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple he found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money-changers sitting there. And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. And he told those who sold the pigeons, “Take these things away; do not make my Father's house a house of trade.”

Meme's Assist me in teaching my students about Sin.

Watch this episode of SpongeBob.  I know, the audio isn't good.  You can find it streaming on NetFlix if you have a membership.

[Yes, I know I did not cite the Catechism of the Catholic Church, as I quote from it directly for the notes.  I plan to go back and add in the citations for the final version.]
