Episode Summary

Making Babies
#14 Content: This edition of the Christian newsmagazine-style series for teens focuses on pregnancy and babies, the band Sixpence None the Richer, and difficult family relations. The 45 minutes are divided into sections for easy viewing by youth groups, with a booklet included for discussion leaders. The first section--and longest at 17 minutes--features several young people candidly discussing the personal and spiritual costs of teen pregnancy. They include a 14-year-old boy helping his teenage girlfriend to raise their child, a girl raising her son alone, another who gave her baby up for adoption, and one who chose to have an abortion. The subjects are treated compassionately rather than judgmentally. Next is a short piece on one student's temptation to give in to physical appetites at college, followed by a 15-minute interview with three of the members of the Christian pop band Sixpence None the Richer, in which they discuss their insecurities, the loss of one member's father, and the temptations of early fame and success. Two short dramas follow, illustrating family resentments and conflicts. The tape wraps up with a four-minute concert piece from the band, featuring the song "Love, Salvation, the Fear of Death."moreless
