I've come back to this post a few times, it's made me think! Sometimes teachers (except maybe in the sciences at lower academic levels)have to teach material with which they do not agree or in which they do not believe. So how do they offer the requisite affirmative? I think it must their willingness to engage with that which discomfits, challenges, offends which they then teach... perhaps it is too easy to confuse the acquisition of subject matter with the process of learning to learn?

As a 'text person' do I model what I want to encourage others to do/be rather than simply transmit information in the abstract? And what are the challenges and responsibilities that brings with something as subjective and intensely sensitive as faith?

Good stuff to 'chew' on, I think
