Reading the letters about the Parramatta Diocese religious education program (February AD2000), I was astonished to see the name of the program: Sharing Our Story.
Who could have thought up such a caricature of a dopey New Age title? It conjures up visions of earnest feminists gathered at a coven, getting in touch with their inner goddess.
To anyone even marginally familiar with New Age beliefs and their insidious influence on Catholic thinking, the very title of this program should be a warning of what the attitudes, conscious or unconscious, of the program's authors may have been.
