On June 24, LinC takes a look at the upcoming film Evan Almighty, in which Congressman Evan Baxter has vowed to change the world. God holds Evan to his promise by calling him to build an ark in preparation for a great flood. The film inspired the Ark ALMIGHTY website, which challenges congregations to change the world through "acts of random kindness." LinC asks youth how they can change their world in big and small ways. Key Scriptures: Genesis 6:5-14; Matthew 14:22-23; John 13:34-35.
On July 1, LinC takes a look at entertainers, athletes, and other celebrities whose bad behavior overshadows their professional accomplishments. These celebrities' recent troubles are especially problematic for people who think of them as heroes or role models. Next week we look at how Christ is the ultimate hero whose example we should follow and how we should be positive role models for others.
