Eight Days 10-27-14

Like in the Beatles’ song Eight Days a Week, youth ministers work so hard it is like working eight days a week. Here continues a weekly series to serve you over your next eight days with eight notes for your information and formation. Pass these along in your e-newsletters (and offer Project YM a little love in the process, please.)

  1. Feel like your youth ministry efforts are going unnoticed? Christopher Wesley has some recommendations.
  2. There is always an on-going conversation regarding Catholic Youth Ministry and the Girls Scouts. Read the latest.
  3. supermanquoteOur poster and cover image this week are Halloween themed. Something from the pumpkin patch above, and a poster recognizing all those heroes donning capes for treats. (left click to enlarge, right click to print, save, or post it and share!)
  4. Life Teen has an article about the masks we wear and the layers we put on to conceal our truest selves. Great article to pass along to young people this week!
  5. Recently, Scott wore an In-n-Out Burger worker’s hat and thunk deep thoughts about the promises we make in youth ministry
  6. Recently found an article about what makes for a hero. In some cases, it might actually be not over-thinking it.
  7. Greg Stier wonders if we can be about re-hero-izing mission work by making evangelization (and for we, Catholics, New Evangelization) to our social justice efforts.
  8. Which of course describes many youth ministers who are heroic in what they do, especially those who are thinking it through for the long haul. For this, friends, we ain’t got nothing but love, babe, eight days a week.

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.
