They're intentionally firetrucking with me!

Today I received a message from my direct superior that I will be handling my first school organization. Of course I was ecstatic with this news, I wanted to be a moderator since I started teaching. But to my surprise, they assigned me to a religious organization not the organization i applied for. a little bird told me that the Organization and Extra-curricular Team Leader heard about me having a "weak" faith and because she wanted to "help" me she gave me the religious org. I tried to reason out with her, i told her that it wasn't the organization I applied for. She just smiled and told me that I am "perfect" for this organization. they're really firetrucking with me!!! *sigh*

What exactly will your role be?  What kinds of things are going to be discussed?  This may be a good opportunity to plant seeds of doubt, or to get students to think about things from different angles with an open mind.  You may just need to be clever in how you go about it.

+1 what Apple said. This could be a good time for some comparative religion (including Norse, Greek, Islam, Roman and all the weird and wonderful christians like the snake handlers etc)

 

Or does this have to be an org for one particular faith?

I have to teach the kids how to pray the rosary. tell them about the lives of saints, angels and the blessed. we'll be reading the bible and share about what we read. Tell each other how powerful and magnificent god is. the miracles done by god... so on and so forth. so it's basically a sunday school with grades lol

You live in the Philippines , yes? Well , if I were you , I would move somewhere else if possible! But if not , I agree with Apple. Talk about Saints. Teach them how they stole money from the masses while subjugating women.   Read the bible , yes.  About Jepthahs daughter , when the bears mauled the little children , or when God sends armies to massacre civilians in new towns.  And explain to them what 'Legends' are and compare the stories in the bible to other myth and miracle stories :)
