How to Keep the Faith on Campus

Last edited 27th August 2013

Those going off to university are in the midst of the most significant transition of their lives. Academically, these high school graduates will learn to think more deeply, read more broadly, and write more cogently. Socially, relationships will shift as distance tests high school friendships and families adjust to a new way of being together. Emotionally, they will likely experience a mix of feelings about their new life. Often overlooked in the transition to college are the spiritual and religious dimensions of the change.

Epic. Fail. - Why It's Ok To Fail Sometimes

Last edited 26th August 2013

When Jesus chose you to be his disciple, He foresaw your future failures as sure as he foresaw Peter’s EPIC FAIL of denying Christ. We may not want to believe that we could deny Jesus by engaging in a sin that contradicts everything we believe. But Jesus knows what is in us and the cool thing is – He still has our back. So He exhorts us along with Peter to “watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Strategic Evangelizing: New Facebook Insights Data and What You Can Do With It

Last edited 19th August 2013

When it comes to evangelizing we don’t ever speak about statistics or data. I’m not talking about assigning specific measurables and reducing evangelizing to a mere thing. It is far larger than that. I’m talking about using the data and statistics to make your efforts in regards to evangelizing far more effective.

Don’t Develop A Social Media Strategy For Your Parish

Last edited 18th August 2013

Like most I’ve been working with various social networks and media for several years now. I’ve heard many people talk about developing a “Social Media Strategy”, and something has just never sat right with me in regards to that phrase. I was asked to write a “Social Media Strategy” recently and was really having a tough time because there was just something about that phrase. So I went look for some help. I picked up a book the other week, Social Media ROI by Olivier Blanchard. Right in the beginning of the book he makes a very important point . . . social media are things, and you don’t develop strategies around things. Strategies are developed around functions such as communications.

Same Love or Some Lies?: Emotions vs. Truth

Last edited 14th August 2013

Music can have a very powerful effect in people’s lives, and the words of a song really matter. Music is a universal language that cuts to the heart in a way that nothing else can. Macklemore makes some bold claims in the new song “Same Love.” And because it fits snugly within the pop culture views currently trending (making the Catholic Church look outdated and hateful while those that support gay marriage are more loving and accepting) and is very catchy and well done, it has struck a chord with millions of people.
