ICYMI 061115

Here is the latest in our weekly series offering a set of hyperlinks useful to the Catholic Youth Ministry field just In Case You Missed It.  We will be posting these on Thursdays, now, and hope to never ever resort to posting cat images just to attract an audience. Please pass these along in your e-newsletters (and offer Project YM a little love in the process, please.)

  • very-cute-cats-wallpaper-i7Fareed Zakaria in Atlantic magazine looks to today’s young people and questions if they are self-centered, careerist, and politically dispassionate as many suggests or if they are really just adapting to the world they live in today.
  • Tim Elmore offers his perspective on the next generations to come.  (Hopefully, they will not be generationally enamored by cat pictures.)
  • When attempting to accompany young people in developing their spiritual maturity, we cannot operate out of a one-size-fits-all mentality.
  • YouthMinistry360 matches the Holy Father’s sensibilities to reach towards the fringes with a deeper look at who is my neighbor as understood in the parable of the Good Samaritan.

D. Scott Miller

D. Scott Miller is the dean of Catholic Youth Ministry bloggers which is a polite way of either saying that he is just plain old or has been blogging for a long time (since 2004.)

Scott recently married the lovely Anne and together they have five adult young people and also grandparent three delightful kids (so, maybe he is just plain old!) Scott presently serves at Saint John the Evangelist in Columbia, MD as the director of youth and young adult ministry.

He has previously served on the parish, regional, diocesan, and national levels as well as having taught within a catholic high school. He is one of the founders of RebuildMyChurch and has returned to posting regularly (keeping regular is important to old guys) at ProjectYM.
