May the peace of Christ be with you.

More specifically, be not afraid.  In the past months, I have spent considerably more time anticipating and working towards positive outcomes.  This proves to be much more life-giving than dealing in dread and attempting to prevent negative outcomes.

Project YM provides this weekly series of Catholic youth ministry hyperlinks for you just ICase You Missed It.

    • Need to be reminded what a blessing you are personally and as a minister? Leneita Fix offers such a blessing for you.
    • From lessons from a free-climber comes another youth ministry examination of conscience: “You must prepare your children for the path, not the path for your children.
    • Speaking as a former volunteer with Chris Wesley, he does “onboarding” of new volunteers well.  Here are his five steps towards easing newbies in
    • Halloween is a’coming, so, therefore, is All Saints Day.  Joe Paprocki’s Catechist’s Journey has some program suggestions.  Recently, I have taken to quoting Pope Francis (from his visit to Philadelphia.) His homily which referenced St. Katherine Drexel and “What about you?” is totally applicable to All Saints.

  • “So, if the “Zombie Apocalypse” occurs, what skills will you bring into the new future?” Scott recalls a look at the Zombie Church young people might unfortunately experience.

These links are offered in the hope that these resources might be useful for you and those you serve. They are offered in confidence that in sharing with one another we all become stronger collaborators within the vineyards of the Lord.  In this season, we optimistically journey with the communion of all the saintly one for we are not the fear-full walking dead.
