Bethesda Series: Overview
Welcome to Bethesda!
By Jill Miller
When I am around people that others see as "dis-abled," I see "abled." One of those abilities is relentless faith. Kim is the fourth of our six kids. She was able to keep up in Sunday School up to first grade, and then, because of her multiple challenges, she got frustrated with all the scissors and interaction with the other kids and teachers.
I believe all of us can learn. We are made in the image of God, and God is limitless. I don't believe in ceilings where people stop learning. With this in mind, I looked at curriculum for Kim and her friends. The material I reviewed looked too simple. Good teachers expose students to concepts that they may never understand. I remember being taught trigonometry and thinking, "What in the world is this man trying to teach me!" But that didn't stop him from exposing me to the information and giving me an opportunity to "grab" what I could. This is what I have tried to do with the Bethesda Series.
Every week my friends in the class teach me. I learn from them! I need their faith and warm honesty. My hope is that the beauty of Jesus will be seen through "the least of these!"
