There are extraordinary moral lessons hidden in the constant stream
of today’s current events, and these lessons are golden teaching
opportunities. Our Faith in Action, a teen-oriented magazine published by
Circle Media, does just that.
In clear, simple language
adapted to teenagers, Our Faith in Action presents the facts
of a single current event and walks the reader through
the principles at work. Each well-illustrated issue teaches teens moral
reasoning skills in a concrete, interesting, and accessible way, using
a hot topic as the “hook”.

if it is possible, Our Faith in Action’s latest issue
is an inspiring read. The October edition tells the story
of a Catholic director (Alejandro Monteverde), lead actor (Eduardo Verastegui),
and film business professional (Leo Severino) who dreamed of making
movies that would express truth, goodness, and values in an
attractive way. To make their dream a reality, they banded
together with an entrepreneur (Sean Wolfington) and founded a pro-values
film company: Metanoia Films. The unexpected film festival triumph of
their first movie, Bella, is living proof that dreams can
become reality with a good dose of faith, talent, and
Since Bella is coming out in theaters on
October 26th, this recent issue of Our Faith in Action
would be an excellent tool for a small group discussion
before or after the film. It could also be a
great way to encourage kids to dream about using their
media talents for Christ.
