What is a youth movement without a group selfie? Used to 8' degrees and hotter, Miami Encuentros Juveniles members bundled up in their winter best during a retreat weekend in Alabama. In the photo are Marcos Mirabent, Mark Gomez, Hector Daniel Ponte, Alexander Gomez, Peter Fleitas, Gaby Garcia, CJ Cristobal, Robert Barcia, Carolina Hernandez, Gabriella gordillo, Gabriel Aguilera, Eli Martinez, Rebecca Garcia, Vicky Cheena Martinez and Zoila Murgado.

MIAMI | When it is 25 degrees outside and you are used to 80 degrees and hotter, you are going to feel homesick. When you are 700 miles away from home, staying at a place that is over 200 years old, has no insulation, and whose restroom breaks and floods everywhere, you are going to feel even more homesick.

So why did 15 young adults from the Encuentros Juveniles movement in the archdiocese endure those hardships this January in Mobile, Alabama? To evangelize.

"We are called to be the right arm of Christ. It is our duty to do God’s work here on earth and the purpose of us going to Alabama was exactly that, to do God’s work,” said Hector Daniel Ponte, a 22-year-old who has been a member of Encuentros since 2008.

With their iconic burgundy banner displaying the right arm of Christ, and the message "You are the light of the world," Encuentros Juveniles members posed for a group photo while leading the first Encuentro in Alabama. In the photo, (back row, from left) are Marcos Mirabent, Robert Barcia, Alexander Gomez, Mark Gomez, Gabriel Aguilera, CJ Cristobal, Peter Fleitas, and Hector Daniel Ponte. In the front row, from left, are Gaby Gordillo, Zoila Murgado, Rebecca Garcia, Vicky Cheena Martinez, Eli Martinez and Carolina Hernandez.

Despite the cold, the distance, and the unpredictable housing conditions, Ponte does not complain. "I realized I couldn’t imagine a better group of people to have spent a weekend with in Alabama,” he said, "in no better conditions than that in which our Lord was born in.”

Encuentros Juveniles was established in the archdiocese in 1979 to promote the spiritual welfare of Hispanic youths between the ages of 16 to 23. Involvement in Encuentros begins with a weekend retreat, and continues with weekly formation meetings and ongoing service activities.

The retreats originally took place in Spanish, since most participants were first-generation Cuban immigrants. But as their U.S.-born children grow up equally fluent in both languages, the retreats — separate ones for men and women — are now being done in both English and Spanish.

OK, that helps. Perhaps this should be made explicit in the post, Luke?

Updating beliefs regarding the conclusion of an argument based on discussion of tone is a poor idea, for sure. Discussion of tone is tangential, and doesn't do much to get you where you're going at the moment. I believe it is placed above ad hominem in the hierarchy because it is more likely to be adding , however - updating beliefs about tone based on discussion of tone makes total sense, and may lead to better discussion in the future.

I'm not certain whether DH-central-point (DH6) is so much different from DH-improve-then-disagree (DH7).

If DH5 is nitpicking (I'll call it DH-nitpicking), then DH-central-point is not. So DH-central-point would mean attacking what the author really wanted to say. But then, what's DH-improve-then-disagree? It can't really be filling the holes in the arguments of the author because then we'd arrive at DH-central-point, wouldn't we? Are there examples that clarify the proposed distinction between DH-central-point and DH-improve-then-refute?

DH6 means attacked the central point of what the author actually said. Just filling in holes in their argument would still fall under that, I think. DH7 means improving the overall structure of their argument (introducing totally new supporting reasoning, for example) and then attacking the result.

In the ideal case DH7 is about attacking the version of an argument that would have been presented by a superintelligence trying to convince you of something, since that's presumably the version of the argument that best relates to the truth.

Not always, not even too often.
