One of the most difficult groups to bring the Gospel to right now is young adults. Fr. Mike proposes that it’s not a lack of time or interest preventing them from receiving the Good News—it’s their perception of Christianity. How can anyone evangelize in a culture so opposed to Jesus? We need to meet a hurting world where it is at and bring it the only medicine that will heal it.
We’ll be doing things a little bit differently on Wednesdays for the next few weeks while Fr. Mike and Ascension work on the Catechism in a Year podcast. If you’d like to learn more about the podcast (and help support our work!) check out http://ascensionpress.com/ciy
