I signed up for an experimental online course through Chicago Theological Seminary. It's called Biblical and Theological Self-Defense for the UCC. Seminary president Rev. Susan B. Thistlewaite is the instructor. I think it's gonna be really interesting and probably a lot fun! (The course runs for 6 (six) weeks from March 27th and costs just $45 to register)
. . . Now from self-defense to what is more like self-preservation. Several years ago, during one of the first ever "movin' and singin'" classes through the Warrenville Park District, I made up a song on the fly. The little ones were running all over the place and paying no attention to the dude with the guitar. When I started to sing the song they started following the directions in the song!
The song has become a favorite. And now I've finally recorded "Marching Around the Room."
You may find it necessary to follow the directions too.
