1 Thinking Christianly About the Subjects We Teach John Denning. 2 Understanding and Handling Legal Issues Edmund Matyjaszek and Libby Powell. The Myth of Neutrality. Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali closed the conference by addressing the myth of secular neutrality. He said that nobody works in a vacuum, least of all a teacher. He urged Christian educators to be careful in their use of vocabulary and to ensure they point out how the Christian faith is relevant to the subjects that are taught. Jesus at the Centre.
