Hello lovely people, another week about to start. Another weekend is ending. I have spent all afternoon and evening reflecting on the question 'What is Religion' in response to an email enquiry I received recently. This inspired me to write up some of the ways I have tried to approach the subject when teaching disaffected students. This is a work in process as I am sure you will appreciate - and writing just 'off the top of my head' it is more of a conversation about the subject than an academic discourse. However I hope it will be useful and perhaps inspire some dialogue on ways in which other teachers have been able to connect with disaffected students. At the end of the document I have given a brief overview of the way that new light or revelation has come into the world over the ages. But I forgot to include Confucius and Laozi (Taoism's main likely founder.) Of course there will be many others too, but I have to stop now. Busy day tomorrow so I'm not intending a night-shift tonight. Do remember, I will come and give bespoke workshops to any school anywhere in UK free during the coming month. (only travel expenses required.) Contact me by pm or email (firstname.lastname@example.org -not .co.uk or .com, it really is .co) and I will phone to discuss in what way I may be able to support your department.
