Movie Critic: A Walk in the Woods

Movie: A Walk in the Woods is based on a book about a personal journey in the Appalachian Trail by Bill Bryson, well-known American writer. It’s a comedy-adventure (my term) with two old guys, played by Robert Redford (still looks good even with wrinkles) and Nick Nolte. It’s entertaining, and the scenery is stunning at times. It has funny one-liners as well as a few deep conversational gems. Not a must-see, but enjoyable.

Some materials from the Catholic Mobilizing Network- To Repeal the Death Penalty.

A Journey of Faith Prezi

You can also access an online version of the Prezi presentation with this link.

I think the Prezi presentation  is appropriate for JR High- Adults. Great for personal use/reflection too.  A Journey of Faith    seems geared to Grades 11,12, College , and ADULTS . Parts of it might be helpful for your own knowledge or to integrate into current  curriculums and parish programs.  


September 26 is the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons.


In the richest and most prosperous country in the world, over 45 million people live in poverty. The younger you are, the more likely you are to live in poverty. One in five children live below the poverty line; and 23% or all children under six do. Over 16 million children live in food-insecure households. Programs such as SNAP (food stamps); Women, Infants, and Children (WIC); School Lunches; and other food assistance are effective and must be protected to fight poverty and hunger.

Join places of worship across the nation, the Washington National Cathedral, the Newtown Foundation and Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence, a coalition of more than 50 national denominations and faith-based organizations, to remember those who have lost their lives to gunfire, pray for those whose lives have been forever changed because of the loss of a loved one, and to educate one another on proven strategies to reduce gun violence.

Then congregations across the nation will participate in weekend events of prayer, song, vigils and education. December 14th is the actual anniversary of the tragic Newtown shooting.
