I wanted to get this down here before I forget it.
I was talking alone with my 12yo son on Sunday night, and I mentioned that I noticed he had been doing things with a boy from church when there had been tension before. He said something to the effect of "Things got better after our schism. We are getting along now."
I guess that History is sinking in! I don’t think *I* even knew what a schism was until I taught about the schisms in the Middle Ages.
