Next month our small groups will begin studying "Christianity in an Age of Terrorism," by Gene Edward Veith. I'm looking forward to the study and to Veith's keen insights to the issues at hand. Hope you can make it. Here is a smaller dose of Veith from his blog. His post, "Youth Group Madness" is worth the read (if you can stomach it - it describes some pretty gross youth activities). If you can't stomach it, his closing words are right on target:
Teenagers get enough entertainment, psychology, and hedonism from their culture. They don’t need it from their church. What they need—and often yearn for—is God’s Word, catechesis, and spiritual formation.
