ADV #250: 15 Years of Rosary Army
Theme Songs and Other Such Stuff
We start the show with Greg's disappointment for not creating a proper new exciting intro in celebration of our 250th episode of Adventures in Imperfect Living. But then again, if you combine all of our past productions, it's really like our 611th, so what's the big deal?
We also discussed the importance of a good blurb for a podcast, which lead to Greg mentioning the book Screenwriting Tricks for Authors (or, Stealing Hollywood: Story Structure Secrets for Writing Your BEST Book) by Alexandra Sokoloff (affiliate link).
Value of Truth and Freedom of the Press
After watching Steven Spielberg's The Post, we talked about Greg's past experience as a journalist, and the frustration of having to look at multiple media sources and making decisions based on "feelings" more than objective truth. This same principle applies to both conversations about politics and news as well as recent topics from within the Catholic Church and how they're reported on by the often biased Catholic media.
15 Years of Rosary Army
Lastly, we look once again at the power of the Rosary. In light of the parable of the Mustard Seed, we are amazed that the Rosary Army 501(c)3 non-profit apostolate has already been in existence for over 15 years.
After much prayer and discernment, and given that it has now been over 5 years since our last giving campaign for the organization, we announce an ambitious giving campaign to launch on All Saint's Day, November 1, 2018.
Given the many initiatives and opportunities faced by Rosary Army, we need to raise $100,000 by the end of the year to continue operations and make these initiatives a reality. We would very much appreciate your assistance. Please prayerfully consider making a tax deductible donation right now at http://newevangelizers.com/donate.
