Welcome to The LoFT


ahh yes... nothing but the great outdoors... and debate

If you were to flip open the dictionary and lookup the word busy, you’d find a picture of Alex next to the definition. Seriously, the man has “bathroom breaks” scheduled in his daily planner (he used to not include them in his planner but embarrassing situations arose at school). He is involved in more things than you can shake a stick at. From Speech & Debate, to a variety of sports, to underwater basket weaving, Alex is a renaissance man of sorts. Amazingly enough, Alex finds enough time to share his writing and reporting talents with Resurrection Youth Ministry’s newsletter staff. As lead interviewer for “The Teen Testament”, Alex manages to secure interviews with some of the most sought after students and parishioners at Resurrection. His secret? You didn’t really think I was gonna tell you… did you?

More to come…

Still more to come…



I make this purple look goooood...

Sarah is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. In fact, she accidentally stepped on a snail on the way to school one day and felt so awful that she decided to make it up to all the other snails in her yard. As an act of contrition, she decided to put on a small backyard production of Disney’s “Beauty and Beast”. Everything was going swell until the stunt double for Lumiere forgot to show up in the second act. Things really started ‘falling apart’ when the ‘fake snow’ (iodized salt) began falling on the set and onto the snail audience. Let’s just say Sarah still weeps to this day when she sprinkles salt on anything she eats.

Patrick’s motto in life is: if it’s not there when I come back for it, it probably wasn’t worth it anyway. Through this seemingly simple but actually profound inspiration, The LoFT now has it’s very own ‘lost & found’ receptacle… affectionately referred to as the ‘Patrick Box’.

  2. why yes it does look like i am smiling cuz…liek zomg i luv hillary duff so much <3.

  3. WOW. Wow Fred haha…I’m totallly going to remember this. If I had a colored printer I’d print this, and put this in my scrapbook…*sigh* Hilary Duff, Hilary Duff…

    So which members is this for, all youth members?

  4. Yep. For all youth members…

  16. I approve of these people. Give them money

  17. Can I have your autograph God?

  18. That depends on your behavior young man. If I gave them out willy-nilly then they wouldn’t be worth quite as much, now would they?

  19. Heheh. God is cool.

  20. hmm…”willy-nilly.” I heard that from Jonathan once…Jonathan should get his words cited xD.
