Point & click: Caring connections and Hollywood Jesus


The online presence of Caring Connections , an inter-Lutheran journal for practitioners and teachers of pastoral care and counseling published by the Inter-Lutheran Coordinating Committee , offers pdf downloads of its publication. The most recent issue (fall 2007) focuses on pastoral care among returning veterans. Article topics include posttraumatic stress disorder, issues military families may face, the roles of military chaplains, stressed marriages among reservists and political sensitivities.


For reviews of movies from a Christian perspective, check out Hollywood Jesus . The site doesn’t shy away from any genre—it features reviews of horror films, comedies, westerns, documentaries and art films alike. Nor does an MPAA R-rating deter reviewers from exploring Christian themes within a film. Some reviews include video or PowerPoint files for facilitating group discussions.
