The chapters included here explore educational structures that communicate high expectations for student and teacher performance and provide individualized instruction, caring mentoring, and support beyond graduation in order to help develop men and women of confidence, skill, leadership, and integrity and ensure high levels of success in a world that tends to exclude them more than welcome them.
Responding to the Call of Salvation
Praise for Responding to the Call for Educational Justice: "One of the most unheralded, unreported and underappreciated initiatives in education are Catholic schools that are transforming the way that young people are taught. In this very timely volume, Fenzel and Wyttenbach eloquently compile an insightful set of readings that courageously respond to our deep human yearning for freedom and offer us glimpses into a more just and loving world.

And in this class we talked about the developmental stages of children. It is interesting to watch the growth of a child. They grow physically , mentally through the literal structure of the brain and the thought processing through the mind , and they grow physiologically as it relates to bones, muscles, intellectually, emotionally, they even grow spiritually.
Even though we looked at different theories of the stages in which children grow; one thing that was common among all of them was the simple fact of the need to change. And I noticed that when they begin to change, their vocabulary begins grow and they begin to mimic what they hear and try to speak and develop sentences. The funny thing is, as they get older, they do not look the same way they did when they were 2 or 3.
We have too many baby adult Christians running around the church when God is calling us to mature into the image, the likeness, and the stature of Jesus Christ. God is still a God of development because he is not too interested in providing us with things that we are not mature enough to sustain whether that be business, school, other opportunities ; otherwise we will destroy and waste the investment that God has placed in us as beneficiaries of His Kingdom.
There was one night where I was extremely overwhelmed and I had a mental break down where I was crying on the floor. My roommate at the time walked in and asked if I was okay and I was pretending that I was looking for my ring that I lost. I found my ring, went outside and sat at the table that was in the middle of the campus and started praying.
One of the Resident Assistants had given me a bottle of anti-depressant pills the night before and as I prayed, I said, Lord you have to do something before I take these pills because if I take this pills, I might do something that I may regret. But this night caused me to trust and depend on God in a way that I had never done or was never used to before. Being Christian is about following Christ out of our old and sinful nature and into a new life and that life more abundantly.

The encounter that Peter has with Jesus is specific; God knows us by name and by Destiny. This lets us know that Jesus calls us by our future selves that he established in the beginning. Peter positioned himself to submit to the authority of Jesus.
When Jesus comes into our lives sometime subtle changes will begin to take place that cause uncomfortability. Your vocabulary is in the process of changing, your mind set and perspective begins to change, you begin to outgrow certain people and certain things and certain places because overtime your appetite begins the process of change. Jesus sat down in the boat and began to teach the multitude, that means your life will testify of the experiences that you have with God.
They that worship Him must Worship in spirit from the heart and in truth from the head knowledge that you know about him. This lifestyle is contrary to the Modern Life and that character attracts attention from both sides of positivity and negativity. Your own personal life preaches its own sermon. Change can sometimes provoke offense: Luke tells us in the beginning of the chapter, that these men were fishermen.
Three things we can learn from Abraham about responding to the call of God
This was their occupation, and even their identities. They were professional fishers and Jesus being a carpenter tells Peter to go out into the deep water to catch some fish. We can get annoyed when our own co-works try to tell us how to do our job, let alone someone who has a whole different career path. Peter did something, he had what I call a Gethsemane Experience ; this is what Jesus experienced in the Garden of Gethsemane and Gethsemane means the place of crushing. It is at this point where Peter positioned himself in submission to the authority of his Master that means his teacher and in this context, it also refers to commander.
