Christian Conviction Court

If you were accused of being a Christian...would there be enough evidence to convict you? During this season of Lent my 5th grade students are on a mission to prove their classmates are Christians! On Ash Wednesday each student drew a name of one of their classmates. For six weeks they have to document in a notebook kind acts they observe that person doing. They've been asked to keep the name of the person they drew a secret. That just might prove to be the most difficult task of this project! During the Easter season my students will take a field trip to my monastery where we will convene the Christian Conviction Court! The students will try to convince a jury of their peers that the person they observed during Lent is indeed a Christian! Stay tuned...
