God’s plan for living happy, healthy, holy lives from beginning to end.
The Respect Life Committee of St. Peter Church has been sponsoring a series of monthly talks that began in September 2012 and are continuing through May 2014. The talks have focused on a variety of relevant topics that include a lifetime of moral issues. All presentations are held at St. Peter Church, 2835 Manor Rd., West Brandywine, PA 19320. They begin at 7 PM, followed by refreshments and fellowship. There is no fee and reservations are not required. All are welcome. The following are the talks presently scheduled.
February 3, 2014 “BEING A MAN IN AN UNMANLY WORLD”
Mark Houck, co-founder of “The King’s Men”, challenges men to reclaim their masculinity in a world that often reduces manhood to just sports, beer drinking and womanizing. His three strategies for combating this negative trend include conversion, brotherhood, and action. Be prepared to leave this talk inspired and ready to “Take courage and be a man” (1 Kings 2:2)
Mark will also touch on the complex issue of pornography addiction and a battle plan for sexual integrity.
February 22 & 23, 2014 THEOLOGY OF THE BODY WORKSHOP FOR HIGH SCHOOLERS (grades 9 – 12)
Theology of the Body for Teens is a dynamic faith formation program for teens which will be offered in a workshop format on Friday evening and during the day on Saturday. Using a great mix of stories, real-life examples, activities, prayers, and relevant references to the culture, it goes beyond traditional chastity programs by connecting the two hottest topics on the planet–God and sex.
With Blessed Pope John Paul II’s compelling vision for love and life, and a language they understand, Theology of the Body for Teens answers the questions teens and pre-teens have about their own bodies, issues on sexual morality, and how they are uniquely created for greatness.
The workshop will be led by Mike Field, St. Peter Youth Minister and Tracy Phillips. It will be appropriate for students in 9th grade and above. A fee will be charged to be determined.
