2016: Not Playing Games

VIEW THIS WEEK'S SHORT, IMPACTFUL LIVE IT:
Catholic Youth ON FIRE


You've heard it said, "He's not playing games."
It means someone is taking something seriously. They have purpose and passion. They're all in. They're all about it. They're infectious. They're... not playing games.

The world is literally being transformed around those who are "not playing games." A few names come to mind of such people I'm privileged to know. Fr. John Riccardo. Peter Herbeck. Dan DeMatte. Sister Ann Shields. Justin Fatica. Lila Rose. Bishop Daniel Thomas.

Add the multitude we meet every day who are so evidently "all in" in their homes, schools and parishes... relentless... passionate....

Can this be said of you with regard to our Church's mission of everyone being claimed for Jesus Christ?

Right now the world needs us to stop playing games.
For many Catholics that means we need to cross the great chasm between knowing concepts and making commitments.  We need to bridge the gap. 

This year of bridging the gap begins tomorrow night.

During the four Tuesdays of January on IGNITE Radio Live! (8pm on Annunciation Radio) four dynamic Catholic pastors are going to address four big questions that bridge the chasm between concept and commitment:

1) Who is Jesus Christ? (relationally, personally, dynamically present)
2) Why do we follow Jesus Christ?
3) What does it look like to follow Jesus Christ?
4) How do we follow Jesus Christ?

What does transformed life in Jesus Christ look like? Check out this week's Live IT Episode. It's a short, impactful video telling the story of what happened this past summer to many people in the Toledo Diocese and beyond.

In 2016 w
e are all about advancing Bishop Daniel Thomas' mission of holy disciples, holy families and holy vocations.

We're partnering with the Diocese, Renewal Ministries, Catholic Youth Summer Camps (CYSC) and others.  This involves monthly IGNITE, Catholic Family Festival, Monthly Catholic Family Gatherings, special Mass Impact + CYSC Youth Session (see video), a new vision for Lift Jesus Higher in November, and Presence for Christmas in December!

At the heart of it all,
join us in having a mass impact on this region for Jesus Christ. Become a Mass Impact Kingdom Builder. IGNITE your parish with Parish IGNITION in 2016.

KINGDOM BUILDERS. 
A heartfelt THANK YOU to all of you who contributed to this mission. Unfortunately, we remain $15,000 short. Please pray about helping us advance this movement in 2016.  Thank you!
