Catholic Connection – December 30, 2015 – Hour 1

+  "Come Follow Me" - Discipleship Living Series

  • Description: "A monthly parish-bulletin insert that guides and encourages Catholics to act as disciples for the faith as they go about their daily work, activities and travels. Designed to be appropriate for parishioners of all ages, the new series was launched in spring 2015 to help augment a parish's religious-education and adult-faith-formation efforts, and to help Catholics to become 'intentional disciples.' Each monthly bulletin-insert focuses on a single faith topic, and combines Scripture, catechesis, prayer and personal reflection to reacquaint parishioners with its true meaning, while it helps them feel more comfortable and conversant in relating it to others."

+  Pew Study on Religion and Science

  • Description: "People’s sense that there generally is a conflict between religion and science seems to have less to do with their own religious beliefs than it does with their perceptions of other people’s beliefs. Less than one-third of Americans polled in the new survey (30%) say their personal religious beliefs conflict with science, while fully two-thirds (68%) say there is no conflict between their own beliefs and science."
