Thanos to Theos Episode 5: Friendly Neighborhood Youth Pastor

In this episode the guys discuss their favorite character-arcs throughout the MCU movies. Mike and Clark square off about Captain America staying with Peggy. We wrap up by highlighting ways we help students learn from storytelling in comics. Especially in a “you-do-you” culture, there’s a lot of value in discussing how superheros reveal the tension between self-denial and self-fulfillment. And we discover how helpful it is to think about this not just for our students, but for ourselves as youth leaders too.

We would love your feedback, input, or questions for future episodes.
