So first of all I am going to get into the R.E Lessons and Decisions. As you know, this year I have taken Religious Education. Or if you want to be smart, Religious, Moral and Philosophical Studies. I have already learned a heck of a lot. The three sections we are doing this year are World Religion – Christianity, Crime and Punishment and Belief and Science. I am especially intrigued for the Crime and Punishment section that we will probably start after the October holidays. It is going to be hard. We have to fit most of the course in, in time for Prelims early next year. So we at least know some of each topic. Just now we are studying Christianity. Although, I do believe in God there is still a lot I have to learn. There is a lot to take in and I love R.E, so far 😉 

There is almost a full class of students in this Int.2/Higher class. Most are doing Higher, I think. Some though just come into R.E thinking its a little bit of a skive or they really just didn’t know what else to take. This year, it’s not. Most of us really do want to learn and I can say that I am the only Christian in that class and everyone has so many questions. One day, I walked into the class to find out we were having a class discussion about our own beliefs. Partly so the teacher could have a better idea of our views but also for us all to know our fellow class mates views. A few said they were brought up as Christians but now are not and others said they are more involved with the social side of church rather than the actual learning about God part. I like 5th year, everyone respects peoples views. You can definitely see a slight increase in maturity. Slight enough for the class to actually be enjoyable. 

In every class, people ask questions. I really admire my teacher or anyone really who can answer questions being fired at them. Really tricky questions too. Yesterday though, someone asked if all Christians believe that God created the earth. Now, I did give a little, quite chuckle at this but my face suddenly straightened up and realized how much teenagers these days don’t know. They don’t care either. I don’t think they realize. Someone once said, although I believe in God, I’d rather believe in God and find out he wasn’t true rather than not believing in him and finding out he is true. Great point. I really pray that the people who don’t know anything about faith and God will soon realize once they find out more and more in these classes. The excellent thing is that they can ask questions to a teacher who knows what he’s talking about. I think that is very helpful:) 

Lastly, I realized that mostly everybody knows what they are going to do when they leave school… I have no idea. I have has phases of wanting to be an Air Hostess. Now though I think that would be kind of boring because although I want to travel the world, going back and forth, to and from the same places wouldn’t be very interesting. Everybody has chosen subjects that fit into what they want to study at University. Where as, I just sort of took middle ground subjects. Psychology and R.E are both good to have. German and English.. it’s always good to throw a language in there and lastly Art. Art is my relaxing subject. The other subjects I chose will be more writing and reading whereas, in Art I can just sit down, draw and listen to music. So, that’s what I chose and I have no idea what I want to do. Everybody who knows me knows that I absolutely love, love, love animals. The thing is, I don’t want to be a vet. I want to care and look after them but you don’t get payed for that and I may need to earn money some how. I don’t know. All I know is I need to know before the end of 5th year. Wish me luck 😀 

Lastly, I wanted to share with you a song that I have been loving. It’s called ‘God’s Great Dance Floor’ By Chris Tomlin.

I’m coming back to the start
Where You found me
I’m coming back to Your heart
Now I surrender
Take me
This is all I can bring

I’m coming back to the start
I got this freedom
In here we feel Your heart
Your heartbeat for us
Take me
This is all I can bring

[Chorus:]
You’ll never stop loving us
No matter how far we run
You’ll never give up on us
All of heaven shouts: let the future begin
Let the future begin

Take me
This is all I can bring

[Chorus:]
You’ll never stop loving us
No matter how far we run
You’ll never give up on us
All of heaven shouts: let the future begin

I feel alive, I come alive
I am alive on God’s great dance floor
I feel alive, I come alive
I am alive on God’s great dance floor
I feel alive, I come alive
I am alive on God’s great dance floor
I feel alive, I come alive
I am alive on God’s great dance floor
I feel alive, I come alive
I am alive on God’s great dance floor
God’s great dance floor!
