Christianity, Culture, and Current Events

These are notes from a Sunday School class that Rita and I are teaching at Christ Community Church during the 2005-2006 school year. A lot of the notes are pretty rough and in progress; they’ll likely be more and more refined as time goes on. (And as we learn how on earth to teach a Sunday School class after all—this is our first time!)
