Teaching Christian religious education at the lower secondary school level is complex. It involves the interweaving of content knowledge, pedagogical skills, a knowledge and appreciation of the multifaceted nature of students and finally the evaluation skills that help the teacher to arrive at the conclusion that the intended key learning outcomes have been achieved. Personal characteristics too are integral in the overall portrait of a professional Christian religious education teacher, especially for those people who believe that today there is the paradigm shift between providing instruction and producing learning between imparting knowledge and facilitating learning. An examination of the available literature reveals that many books have been written about how religion should be taught in schools. This book is not about any particular religion; it addresses the deficiency of materials related directly to the essential approaches that should be employed when teaching Christian religious education at the lower secondary school level in Uganda.

Europe's Heart and Soul. Jacques Delors' Appeal to the Churches
Jacques Delors speaking as the European Commission's President in 1990, made the historic appeal to the churches to contribute to giving Europe "a heart and a soul". His appeal signaled a new phase in the dialogue between the churches and the European institutions. This publication explains what Delors had in mind. Europe should be more than a market, its future should be based on recovering solidarity in society and on a shared "sense of belonging" to a wider community. The search for a new "meaning" for Europe was a moral and spiritual challenge. Today, the "heart and a soul" appeal still stands. Europe is not only about economics, it is also about values and culture. However, today's context is that of a European Union facing a deep internal crisis. A "sense of belonging" and dialogue with each other are more necessary than ever. In a world of growing instability, the churches can play an important role in reminding the European Union of its original raison d'être of solidarity, peace and reconciliation.

Pensées européennes. De l'homo nationalis à une nouvelle citoyenneté
On imaginerait mal l'Europe sans ses institutions. Plus de cinquante ans de construction européenne n'ont pourtant pas donné naissance aux États-Unis d'Europe escomptés par ses « pères fondateurs ». Ce petit livre aborde cinq sujets qui, d'une façon ou d'une autre, préoccupent les Églises en ce moment de l'histoire. Paradoxalement, leur contenu est très peu connu mais ils lient des questions de nature théorique à des questions relatives à l'identité européenne : le problème des fondements de l'Union européenne ; les valeurs européennes ; la démocratie européenne ; la justice sociale et le droit, et les frontières de l'Europe.
