Xt3 Podcast: SCENE 2010-Workshopshttp://www.xt3.com/library/view.php?id=3648SCENE-Sydney Congress Embracing the New Evangelization: Called for by Pope John Paul II, the "New Evangelisation" proclaims the ever ancient message of the faith in new and practical ways that help to engage people of all ages into the richness of our Catholic life. SCENE 2010 aims to teach people about these new methods and give people an opportunity in practicing them in encounters through Street Evangelisation. The "New Evangelisation" is not about changing the message or the richness of the Church, it is simply about encountering new ways of expression that help witness the Church in the world.   Listen to the audio from the SCENE workshops here.  Wed, 25 Aug 2010 01:35:14 GMT1440en2019 xt3.comWed, 21 Aug 2019 07:11:29 GMThttp://www.xt3.com/images/libraryResource/thumbnails/92156.jpegSCENE 2010-Workshopshttp://www.xt3.com/library/view.php?id=3648Music and the New EvangelisationBy infusing music with the Gospel, we can propose Christ using a language that people of the 21st century understand, especially youth.
