I came into the Church through the Charismatic Renewal. I’m less active in it now but don’t go thinking I hate the Charismatic Renewal and want to see the Franny’s burn, because I don’t. The Charismatic Renewal brings into the Church thousands of kids a year and it probably is the Church’s most effective tool for helping those teenagers living less than saintly lives. But I once had a priest tell me just because God is willing to use you doesn’t mean He approves of you. The Charismatic Renewal is large and obviously some groups are good spiritually and others groups are sitting in a circle drinking Kool-aid in the name of the Holy Spirit. The Charismatic Renewal is made up of many groups that are all different in their views of the Holy Spirit and that’s one thing that upsets me the most; that there is mass confusion and differing opinions and no-one is trying to work through these problems together.
Parking is awful at every college, but what about at FUS? At the beginning of this year there was a meeting for all household coordinators, at this meeting Dean Schmiesing was asked whether more parking spots will be made to which the Dean said that although some students have to park far away that there were still enough parking spots for everyone and that no more parking lots have been planned.
Ten Great Movies
1. Tremors (1990)
In a small desert town giant worms start coming out of the ground and attacking people, it’s one of those funny horror films I guess the word would be campy. Regardless it’s the perfect film, monsters and Mr. Miyagi for the guys and for the ladies Kevin Bacon stars in it.
Every college has its little quirks. They may be annoying or maybe you’re one of the people who enjoy doing them, either way (as much as some of us hate them) it wouldn’t be FUS without an awkward pinch of weirdness.
You ever been with your girl (or just a girl) and you’re desperately trying to think of a movie to watch before she can come up with one. But of course she beats you to it and you end up watching Baby Mamma and wishing you were blind and deaf. Well here is a list of my top ten guy and girl movies, the movies that may not be chick flicks or Rambo but their neutral enough were both of you can still have your dignity by the end of the film.
Be aware I’m using the term Secular theology loosely, to refer to a recent trend in Catholic colleges and universities to hire theologians/philosophers who are atheists or non-Catholic as professors. One of the main lines of reasoning behind it is that because they do not hold to any particular religion they’re able to look at theology more objectively, because they have no interest in guiding it to any preconceived beliefs. I’m not sure how I feel about it so instead of writing an opinion why don’t I just show both sides and let you guys decide.
-In this movie Charlie who is played by Chris Rock finds a golden ticket in a pack of menthol cigarettes and gets to be one of the few kids to visit the Willy Wonka chocolate factory. So he shows up to the factory with his grandfather played by Samuel Jackson and are both greeted by Willy Wonka who is played by Christopher Walken. Oh and the oompa loompas are all mini versions of Bruce Willis.
