There are some moments of comfort teaching high-schoolers at large Christian school. I recently mentioned the Prayer of Jabez book as an example of something or other … and no one knew what I was talking about. The good news is that Christian fads are a vapor and pass away quickly. The bad news is that there’s always a new purpose-driven fad to take its place. Oh well, we’ll keep teaching the classics and wait for each mist to dissipate in its turn.
