More Than Just Sports

 

Participating in sports activity is not only about physical gain. It’s about teaching our youth life lessons and mainly about building their psychological and spiritual strength and experience. This video presents the real benefits behind playing sports. Prepared and presented by Fr. James Soliman of Holy Virgin Mary Church, Los Angeles and produced in a professional energetic pace, it makes this video a wonderful educational tool for all family members.

Bridging The Gap


Bridging the Gap is presented by the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of Los Angeles, Southern California and Hawaii and produced by TRUELITE PRODUCTIONS under the auspices of His Grace Bishop Serapion. It is intended as an educational video describing the challenges and some proposed solutions to the many issues facing Coptic Orthodox families outside of Egypt as a result of immigration and acculturation.

The video includes interviews with clergy, professional psychologists, parents and youth within the diocese. The four primary areas of exploration are:

1- Culture Gap: Differences and conflicts between parents and youth resulting from growing up in different cultures.
2- Generation Gap: Differences of tastes, values, outlook, and attitudes between youth and their parents.
3- Communication Gap: Differences in methods and styles of communication between youth and their parents.
4- Language Gap: Communication weaknesses within the family resulting from youth and their parents having different primary languages.

This documentary presents solutions for both parents and youth. Also, the role of our Coptic Orthodox Church outside of Egypt in helping families to bridge this critical gap.
