E29 Should “Christian” Mean “Family Friendly”

Movie night for youth group has always been too complicated an issue.

For the most part, if it’s totally appropriate it’s boring. If it’s engaging, there’s too many fast-forward moments to remember.

Then we’ll just watch Shrek.

Of course, the issue is a little more nuanced than that. But it does bring up a good question: Should Christian content always be family friendly?

What does family friendly even mean? For that matter, what does Christian mean?

That’s what we’re talking about in this week’s podcast.

I Want Jesus to Walk With Me

I led a prayer meeting through Zoom this morning. It’s something I’ve done for about six months now.

We use this resource: https://www.amazon.com/Common-Prayer-Liturgy-Ordinary-Radicals/dp/0310326192

Every week there is a centering song. This week’s was I Want Jesus to Walk With Me. In my preparation for the prayer group, I found three versions of the song to use (There were, of course, many more).

I couldn’t decide which version to use. So, I asked someone from the group to choose.

Well, I have a website. So now I can play all three 🙂

Here’s the first: https://youtu.be/SGmLVIltVg4

You know how to work Google. Go find me a few more great versions.
