SPIRIT Online is the only religion program for teens that links the Sunday Gospels to their lives. And it is all online—ready for teens on their phones and tablets. Ready for you to forward to parents and Confirmation sponsors. SPIRIT begins on October 6th this year. The autumn issues feature a series on prayer. Advent brings the prophecies of Isaiah for a peaceful world. The Sundays after Christmas explore Jesus as he teaches and heals in Galilee. The Lent and Easter issues ask teens what kind of Christians they want to be.
Any Sunday Gospel or SPIRIT issue can lead to conversion. When we let the Holy Spirit in, something good takes root. We are happy that SPIRIT is a part of that for the teens in your care. Please call Lacy at 800-232-5533 to set up your subscription for 2019-2020. Or go to goodgroundpress.com to place your order. May the blessings of summer be yours in abundance.
As a child soldier Ishmael Beah learned firsthand that revenge spreads and multiplies without limits or fairness. He joined the army rather than starve after his family was killed. Older soldiers told him the army gave him a way to avenge the killings of his family. At the United Nations Ishmael testifies to what he has lived: revenge never ends, killing leads to more killing.
Here he further discusses his experiences as a child soldier in Sierra Leone:
Ishmael Beah has just released a second book – a novel called “Radiance of Tomorrow.” It is set in post-war Sierra Leone.
