MaTante was sitting in the pews while the teens presented the various readings from the Jewish Scriptures. She watched as they enacted stories from Genesis, used a PowerPoint presentaion for the Creation Story, told the story of Jonas and the whale and engaged the children in the story of Noah and the ark. She cried. Like me she remembers these teens when they first came to us. Undisciplined, arrogant, ignorant of religious traditions, they are now acting like older brothers and helping teach the younger ones. This is probably one of the most rewarding moments of our time here!
