My lesson in this past Sunday’s Youth class seemed to miss the target a little. Sometimes it’s spot on, and sometimes I miss by what seems like miles. I can never tell as I’m preparing a lesson if it’ll be a home run or otherwise. It seems as though I should have some indication however. Am I missing something?
Now, I know that there are external factors that will play in to the success, or lack there of, in any class. For example, if key people aren’t there, discussion and participation may suffer, but what if everyone is there and they just stare back at you like you’re nuts? Thoughts?
If you’re in my class please accept my apologies. I will try harder next week. If you’re a teacher or minister, what are some things you do to ensure every lesson has potential to be a home run?
