In taking this class, I've been absorbed in reading theories for my class on families. My homilies have really suffered and I hope my people will forgive that I'm basically borrowing them from past years or stealing ideas from the internet.
So today, for instance, I borrowed the content from this site and talked a lot about water. The problem is that we don't want to hear about water that can't drain. There's water in Iowa City that needs to drain and Cedar Rapids and Cedar Falls...and other places. I just couldn't think of a better analogy for "giving what we ourselves received." So, if you have ideas of what you would do, let me know. What would you have done?
