Re-Think with Chris Estrella

Posted at 22 August, at 23 : 39 PM Print

Jesus chose young people to be his apostles and disciples. Today how do we get young people to Jesus?
In this interview  by Fr. Mike, Chris Estrella tells of his journey as a young person and the influence of his mother on his faith.  Peer pressure was a big obstacle which sometimes made him hide his faith from others.
Music was always a part of his life and today he works in a diocesan Office of Worship and so on a daily basis is directly involved with faith.
Chris speaks of his work with young people today and what they are looking for. He speaks to them directly and honestly and also speaks to them through his music. One song – Come As You Are – helps the young to feel accepted.
They talk about what the young are looking for in the church. Pope Francis enters the conversation. Chris says that the Pope has upped the “coolness” factor of the Church.
Don’t miss this “cool”  young man talk about helping other young people reach out to God.
