I’m starting a Sunday School series with the Juniors and Seniors at Arborlawn that looks at the book of Revelation. I feel like this is a topic that many people tend to avoid because we’re not sure what angle to take. I’m in that camp. I have found a great book that makes the book a lot more approachable (it also happens to be written by one of my seminary professors) and that I will be using to frame the lessons. I know the study will be tricky, but I also know that it will be worth it to have the students thinking about what we typically hear something is “about” and being able to shed conventional thinking and open their minds to something different.
Are there topics that you generally avoid teaching? What are they? What’s holding you back?
