Religious Education 



Thought of the Month

Do you feel scared when you start something new? Does the learning process feel foreign? Logically we know this awkward feeling is normal, but that doesn’t dismiss our insecurity or fear. So how do we move forward in the face of the unknown, the unfamiliar, the scary, the new?

Step, step, step.
Wobble a bit more.
Notice progress.
Step, fall, step.
Learn from fall.
Focus on progress, not setbacks.
Step again.
Develop a comfortable stride.
Gain confidence by practicing steps.
Follow leaders who already fly.
Watch them carefully.
Stand still and stretch out wings.
Flap wings.
Jog a bit and try a leap.
Get back up.
Start walking again.
Try another leap.
Step, jog, then leap, flap wings and try to fly.
Fly a few feet, fall.
Dust self off and try again.
Step, then jog, then leap, flap and fly a little farther.
Keep practicing.
Eventually learn to fly higher and longer.
Learn to soar.
Praise God all along the way.
Explore life from a higher perspective.
And be sure to notice new birds.
Teach them how to move past their wobbly first steps.
Celebrate their small successes.
Show them the joy of first flights.
So if you are starting something new, remember those first steps are awkward and wobbly, but they lead to our first flights. So, step, friend, step.. It’s all worth it.
