This week I had one of my favorite lessons in seminary so far. I printed up part of a talk by Elder Charles Didier entitled "Bridge of Faith". I had edited the talk down to the bare bones, then I had teams of 3 students study the talk and then draw their own bridge.
2 of my students are also former Webelos of mine - and they remembered in flattering detail the lessons I had given them in building bridges. It's nice to know that sometimes something sticks.
The students (mostly the boys) wanted their artwork judged, so I offered to go get an impartial judge, Brother Sorenson, our seminary principal. He came in 5 minutes before the end of class and the kids had to explain their pictures to him. I had told him (in private) that I didn't want there to be an actual "winner" - I don't need weeks of boasting.
Well, he didn't exactly declare a winner, but this last entry did catch his eye. Evidently I have some politically savvy students who decided to name their bridge after the judge. I have a feeling that this bridge will live in infamy.
