Hello, again! Here’s what we’ve added this week…
- a brand new podcast (the one we tried to pull of last week) about the Amber Heard-Johnny Depp trial
- a reminder that now is the time to volunteer for music and choir at this year’s teen camp
- and a short article we’d like to recommend by Mr. Paul Kearns about the danger of propaganda in a world that is trying to take over your brain.
And, again, if you landed here looking for the Living Youth camp website, as always you can find it at Camp.LivingYouth.org.
Have a wonderful Sabbath, everyone!
The podcast topic this week was requested by a young adult a couple of Sabbaths ago. Seeing that a lot of people were talking about it, the Heard-Depp defamation trial seemed a good opportunity to model biblical thinking about an oddly big pop culture moment, so we were all in. Then, as we were uploading it last week, we discovered we were making a basic error of fact—which Mr. Robinson explains early in this podcast—so, we re-recorded today. Facts are important! Still, we hope you enjoyed the first installment of “Five Questions” with Mr. DeSimone last week, and we look forward to doing more in the future.
Also, as mentioned in the podcast, we now have a dedicated email address you can send questions, comments, or suggestions to (thank you, IT Department!). That address (which I will type oddly in a vain attempt to fool the spam bots) is podcast [at] livingyouth.org. We’d love to hear from you! Here’s the podcast…
Editor’s Note: This will be announced this Sabbath in services, but it seemed like it would be helpful to include here. We look forward to hearing from our talented teens and staff members at the teen camp this year!
