In my former life as a teacher I often encountered pupils who found it difficult to grasp the ideas I was trying to get across. Notably when I tried to differentiate between diffusion and osmosis. It’s a difficult concept but relax, I am not going to give you a biology lesson. Their responses ranged from “I don’t understand Miss” through, “I don’t get it Miss” to “This is doing my head in Miss” I know how they felt.
When I first looked at our readings for today, I thought “O Good, the gospel of Luke. It will be a nice parable. But Oh no. A very difficult piece –and when I read the other passages it did not get much better”
I didn’t get it. It was doing my head in.
