Focusing on the main teachings about the Creed from the Catechism, this fantastic DVD contains the following 13 short films - great for youth ministry, religious education, and Catholic school programs and classrooms. In order to effectively reach this generation with the richness and beauty of our Catholic faith, it must be done in new and relevant ways. Teens watch a staggering amount of media content each day. Why not reach out to them through this channel that resonates with them and speaks their language? The VCAT Video Catechism does this through creative short films and videos that use cultural analogies, creativity, humor, and always try to answer the question, "Why should a teenager care about this?" At the heart of each video is a point (or points) articulated by the Catechism of the Catholic Church. This fantastic DVD contains the following 13 short films - great for youth ministry, religious education, and Catholic school programs and classrooms: 1) The Creed - Is there a difference between believing there is a God and believing in God? (3 minutes) - English & Spanish subtitled versions. 2) The Pursuit - I fled him, down the nights and down the days. I fled him, down the arches of the years.
