RENEW's Theology on Tap Featured on Good Morning America
RENEW International Young Adult Ministry team members, Leah Thomas and Joe Arner, had a chance to discuss RENEW’s Theology on Tap as part of a recent Good Morning America segment on young adults in the Catholic Church. The piece which aired on Sunday April 20, 2008, was themed to coincide with Pope Benedict’s visit to America and his outreach to youth. The key topics included challenges facing the Church in reaching this important group as well as positive efforts and hopeful signs. Theology on Tap was mentioned in this context as a successful way to “meet young adults where they are” by presenting relevant faith topics in relaxed settings conducive to attracting young people, including restaurants and bars. Other young adults featured were involved with planning past Theology on Tap events in collaboration with RENEW International were Katie Daily, Bridget Haskell, and Brian Hyland.
