We concluded Discipleship 101 at Dixon with the distribution of certificates and a discussion on possible curriculum for the next class scheduled to start in January 2013 along with Renewing Fatherhood.
Despite passes being issued it appears the some of the correctional officers were not letting men attend Renewing Fatherhood at Sheridan. It may have been because of reduced staff for the holiday. Five men did attend and instead of teaching the scheduled topic of relationships we discussed some of the hardest trials they have encountered while being incarcerated.
There was no issue with passed for the evening's Discipleship 100 at Sheridan as we discussed prayer. Because there being no class next week on November 30, the class laid hands on Jesse who is scheduled to be paroled December 5th and was attending his last class.
Glory to Him and Him alone.
No classes next week as I will be out-of-town.
