Nothing More Beautiful Season One Encore Begins This Evening

July 3, 2009
Early morning flights and -26 degree Celsius temperatures.
That was my impression of Edmonton after the first session of Nothing More Beautiful (NMB).
It's funny thinking back to it now, as July temperatures have pushed winter jackets far from my mind. But it was pretty chilly last December when S+L cameraman Wally Tello and I ventured to the City of Champions. The freezing temperatures were quickly melted away though by the warm reception we received from the staff at the Edmonton Archdiocese, and the many lay people and priests who make the NMB project possible. It's been great getting to know our friends out west, and we look forward to another four years! (the second season of NMB will debut in early November, for information on it and the great speakers you can expect to see, visit the official NMB webpage HERE.)
Each time Wally and I leave Edmonton, we leave not only with fond memories, but a number of tapes with some fantastic material! The catechesis talks have been outstanding, ranging from Archbishop Smith laying the foundation for the encounters; to Sister Prokes touching on the human body and sexuality; to Archbishop Chaput encouraging us to not be 'half-way' Christians; to Bishop Corriveau stressing the importance of our role in building a culture of life. The witness talks have been moving as well -- Lea Singh turned from a lucrative position asnmb-ep1-collage a lawyer in New York to promote the family and life issues; Pembroke, Ontario's Michael and Therese Ferri shared their profound experience with theology of the body; S+L own's Mary Rose Bacani's recalled three major calls from God in her life; and Madonna House's Patrick Stewarts went from jacuzzis and sports cars to milking cows and humble service to God and his neighbour.
On Friday evenings in July we will be revisiting the first season of Nothing More Beautiful encounters. (Visit our Nothing More Beautiful webpage for programming details.)
We invite you to join us Friday, July 3rd, at 8pm ET, for the first session of NMB, In the Image and Likeness of God, featuring the Archbishop of Edmonton, the Most Reverend Richard Smith, and the Catholic Organization for Life and Family's Assistant Director, Lea Singh. You can also catch a Saturday, July 4th repeat at midnight & 12:30 pm ET.
Come rediscover the beauty of knowing Christ!
