TLC 247/6 online Douglas LeBlanc August 30, 2013 News The latest edition of The Living Church is available online to registered subscribers. This edition features a cover essay by the Rev. Matt Marino on renewing youth ministry. Fr. Marino writes: Where we do still give students leadership, we tend to give them community built around fun without much spiritual formation and a strong commitment to progressive political causes. Many students tell us that they want to “know God” and leave us for churches that are unapologetic in their Christian message and willing to give answers rather than endlessly “embracing questions.” Others, realizing that they don’t need the church in order to have community based around political causes, leave to the political cause.
