What color are Jesus’ eyes?

I jsut came back from visiting the Diocese of Shreveport, LA where I presented two seminars: oneĀ on media mindfulness to parents and teachers at St. John Berchman’s cathedral andĀ another on the influence of digital culture on faith formation on the diocesan level. What a lovely diocese. it was an inspiration to meet, as I so often experience, people who are truly invested in their faith and ministries. It was an inspiration! And not without its funny moments!

Here are two stories that seminar participants shared with us:

A first grade teacher told us that she that she had assigned her students the task of drawing a picture of Jesus. One little guy raised his hand and asked: “What color were Jesus’ eyes?” Rather than get into a discussion, she responded, “Well, no one is really certain….” And her student replied, “Well, could you please google it because I would like to be sure.”

Then another teacher told about showing her class a picture of someone typing on a typewriter and she asked the student “What is the man doing?” The girl replied after a moment. “Oh, he is texting on paper.”
