A summer of 'radical acts'

TMC Youth, the youth-focused arm of The Mother Church, recently announced an ecumenical summer program called “Radical Acts” on time4thinkers.com. The program gathers 18 of Jesus’ “toughest teachings”—things like “Forgive 70 x 7” and “Do good to people who hate you”—and challenges participants to live them. “We’ve heard from a lot of young people that it’s hard to relate to Jesus and what he did,” says Amy Richmond, TMC Youth’s manager of Web activities. “They don’t think they can do the same. This summer they’ll see differently.”

“Radical Acts isn’t just for youth,” adds Nina deCordova, one of the creators of the program. “It’s for anyone who wants to live Jesus’ teachings with community support . . . It’s much easier to act radically, and dig deeper spiritually, together.”
