  46. 49. UNITY: CHURCH & STATE   VATICAN CITY, 9 JUL 2009 ( VIS ) VIS: &quot;During the cordial discussions mention was made of the Holy Father's trip to Sydney in July 2008 for World Youth Day, recollecting the great spirit of collaboration between the ecclesiastical and civil authorities that characterised the organisation of that event. At a bilateral level,… as well as of ecumenical and inter-religious dialogue, and of co-operation between Church and State in the educational and social fields&quot;. VIS 090709 (230) PRESIDENT OBAMA: &quot;I also think that opportunities are provided to individuals through civic institutions like religious organizations. And I also (think) the government plays an important role.&quot; http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/07/07/obama-says-social-justice-catholic-church-profound-influence
  47. 50. ARE PROTESTANTS PLAYING THEIR ROLE? LYLE E . SCHALLER’S PRESCRIPTION FOR A HEALTHY CHURCH <ul><li>An Attitude Check for Your Church   </li></ul><ul><li>To win the youth , Schaller tells us, the church needs to &quot; shift from the printed and spoken word to visual communication, including drama, music, visual images, motion and humor .&quot;  This list matches the strategies used by educators to change the beliefs and values of children in public schools . It works just as well for &quot; Christian &quot; leaders who see themselves as change agents . For when drama and visual images replace diligent study of God's written Word , it is easy to alter His message and conform it to the demands of a world that seeks positive affirmations rather than the whole truth . </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.crossroad.to/articles2/globalchurch.htm#1 </li></ul>

  52. 55. STORY OF REDEMPTION <ul><li>Idolaters were led to receive a part of the Christian faith, while they rejected other essential truths . They professed to accept Jesus as the Son of God and to believe in His death and resurrection ; but they had no conviction of sin and felt no need of repentance or of a change of heart . With some concessions on their part, they proposed that Christians should make concessions , that all might unite on the platform of belief in Christ . …Some of the Christians stood firm, declaring that they could make no compromise . Others reasoned that if they should yield or modify some features of their faith, and unite with those who had accepted a part of Christianity, it might be the means of their full conversion . {SR 322} </li></ul>
