Youth Emphasis Week Day 1

Today was the first day of our Youth Emphasis Week this year. We’re doing a TV program spoof called “Invertido.” Today went well. We turned the music auditorium into a TV studio, and today we talked about what we many people see when they see young people. Huberto was the “special guest.”

During the program, we had a “live” interview with Edgar (which we had taped beforehand). He talked about some interviews he did the day before. Here is the video (in Spanish):

Benefits of Seminary retreats

Benefits of Seminary retreats

Twice a year, the seminary has a retreat that is obligatory for all students. In the past they have been very programmed, and, quite frankly, they tire me out. Going away for an all day adventure with the entire seminary sounds like lots of fun, but it’s always ended with me having a headache and being so worn out that I can’t be ready for the next day’s classes.

However, our retreat last week was fun and tiring, and I’ve decided that there are many benefits to these retreats on a personal level.

  • The Youth Ministry program is more visible.
  • My attendance is a good example for my students.
  • I can get to know the director and dean better.
  • I get to know more students who aren’t in my classes.
  • There’s usually pretty good food.

Here are some pics from the retreat:
