Are you in youth ministry and you've had it with crazed parents? Rollin' your eyes at the pastoral council? Tired of administration work? Love youth? Love the Church? Appalled at parish politics? Looking for some good games? For a creative ways to teach a lesson for Religious Ed? Just need a place to veg out and say "phew! Someone outside of the parish to talk to!"? Grab y'r Starbucks, turn the computer away from the staff's eyes, grab a seat on a donated dusty couch and let it all go.

Medical Ethics Discussion

With all that is going on in the media and on the internet about Terri Schiavo's case, I'm going to bet that the kids are at least wondering what the heck is going on. And if we leave it to the ding-dongs interviewing her seriously misguided and greedy husband the info coming out is incorrect which leads us to make incorrect conclusions.

It may warrent some discussion with your kids about what the Church teaches on such matters. The National Catholic BioEthics Center has great information. You will need to read it and formulate it into a lesson (maybe you'd like to share that with us when you do...!) but if you have any wonderings what the Church teaches, this is a start to some good resources. I have other books that I'll post as well.

Update: The site has some excellent recommendations as well.
