Thank you for this reflection, Richard. You stirred up lots of thoughts and memories with that simple linking of SJA with service learning. I had never thought of Christian Service Learning (CSL), which is what it is called in Catholic Ed in Australia as coming from SJA, but it makes sense. And I thought of all the projects I undertook with students at Kolbe and realised that SJA was sitting behind all of them. So I forwarded the link to your reflection to a friend in that school and will send it to another, who will take up a leadership position in a Catholic school. Again, thank you for taking the time to write about prudence and SJA.
