4 – Occupy

4<<< 5 – Emergency Room YM The Occupying Movement seems to have come and gone, but the lessons of mobilizing young people in our culture still resound from the Arab Spring.  Last January, I made some of my own best guess-timates regarding where we might go with all this.  Here’s an excerpt:

Maybe we have to expect more of the 1%… not just to treat them as recipients or occupycustomers, but as actual collaborators. Perhaps, we have to also find new ways to collaborate in the lives, in the arenas, where young people are spending the pie charts of their lives. Perhaps we need to understand ourselves as the Church that occupies… like Jesus did. We need to find ourselves within meals of others, not just at our Eucharistic meal. We need not to enclose the Living Waters within our Churches, but to share them in the Samaritan Woman’s wells of young people’s lives. 3 –  Video Training>>>
