Youth Ministry: The Early Church Way

Last edited 18th October 2012

Scouring the Patrologia Latina and Patrologia Graeca, there nothing to suggest that Ambrose had ever led teens on ski trips to the nearby Alps. Digging through the Eastern Fathers, there are no junior-high dances, not even a pizza party in either Antioch or Alexandria. In fact, in all the documentary evidence from all the ancient patriarchates of the East and the West, there's not a single bulletin announcement for a single parish youth group.

Last edited 18th October 2012

Many Christian Churches worldwide are attempting to “re-brand” Christianity as young, cool, and hip. While these efforts appear to have varying degrees of success in attracting young Christians, are these gimmicks really going to bring young people back to church for the long-run?

The Bible: God’s Original Text Message

Last edited 28th January 2015

How do you break through the technological barriers of this tech-savvy teen subculture? What role (if any) does sacred Scripture play in the life of Catholic adolescents? Do modern teens actually want to pick up a Bible and read or have conversations with mouths and not thumbs?

Cardinal v. Atheist: Without God We Are Nothing

Last edited 18th October 2012

Cardinal George Pell, Archbishop of Sydney, and atheist Dan Barker debated the topic: Without God We Are Nothing, at Macquarie University. A vigorous and lively debate was had, with over 300 people in attendance. The debate was structured so that each speaker received ten minutes to present their case, then had a chance at rebuttal, and finishing off with a few minutes to directly cross examine the other. There was then time for questions from the audience. Part 1 of this audio presents the main arguments and rebuttal, with part 2 presenting the (very lively) cross examination, and some hard hitting questions from the audience.
