dc.description.abstract"Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them;| for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."||Jesus accepted the children, the innocent ones, those who were willing to listen and learn, and they will grow up to take over. The kingdom of heaven belongs to them.||It's back to school time. The young people come to me, I hope willing to listen and learn. I know my students grow up to be doctors and lawyers and teachers and business executives. The kingdom of earth belongs to them. But here at Creighton we have another responsibility to our students too. Besides teaching them grammar and literature and how to write, I also end up teaching some about philosophy and history and religion and tolerance and maybe morality. The kingdom of earth belongs to them, but so does the kingdom of heaven. Through the stories they read and the papers they write in my classes, I want my students to learn something about themselves and how they fit into the world. I want them to learn about what it's all about. By reading, they can learn about history and human relations and communications. By writing they can discover what they think.||I know these young people are going to run the world. I hope they get from Creighton the knowledge and the humanity to do it well and morally as will befit them in the kingdom of earth, and later on, the kingdom of heaven.en_US
