Totally Catholic Youth Ministers Lounge

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.

The End of the Spear

Having gone to a Christian school for most of my elementary and secondary educated life I heard this story several times. One of the widows, Elizabeth Elliot wrote "Through Gates of Splendor" which is probably on every booklist of every wouldbe Protestant missionary. It's an amazing story, actually.

I am hoping hoping hoping that this movie does art justice. For too long "Christian (including Catholic) art has been sickly and sappy. That's why "Therese" didn't go far.

But this looks interesting. I'm hoping to see it at some point.
