Patterns and Possibilities: Exploring Religious Education in the Catholic Secondary Schoolby James Heft, Thomas Groome, Lars Lund, Mary Frances Taymans (Editor)
In this collection of essays, philosophical and pedagogical beliefs are raised, reviewed and encouraged. Father Heft establishes the Catholic school setting and emphasizes the challenges facing Catholic high school religion teachers. Groome, in the second essay, focuses on the communal and relational aspects of spirituality and provides strategies and examples of how teachers can "use conversation as a mode of faith education." Mr. Lund's practical experiences and spiritual reflections shape his essay. He advocates a model, which actualizes the teacher's dual calling as catechist and educator, while effectively adopting additional roles, i.e., missionary, cultivator, theological thinker, catalyst, and mentor.
