Teens, sex and families

September 30, 2010 No Comment

Dealing with teens and sex is not easy. However, the fifth annual Love Life Conference on November 6, 2010 at Concordia University College of Alberta in Edmonton will try.

Designed to address issues related to teenage sexuality, the conference will focus on the theme “Getting Real about Sexuality: Celebration, Truth and Consequences.” It is sponsored by Lutherans for Life-Canada, Concordia Lutheran Seminary, and the ABC District of Lutheran Church–Canada.

Among the presenters is Rev. Dr. Roger Sonnenberg, who will speak on “The New Family Dynamics” and “Pornography, the New Crack Cocaine.” Dr. Sonnenberg is a well-known speaker and organizer of the Love Fest at Our Saviour Lutheran Church in Arcadia, California

Dr. Stephen Chambers of Concordia Lutheran Seminary will use I Corinthians as his text for a talk entitled “Priceless Sex.”

The conference is open to teens and adults, and both church workers and lay people are welcome. Sessions are designed to give teens and those who interact with them the tools to deal with an increasingly permissive culture in which many teenagers are sexually active at a young age and are subject to many temptations around them.

The Love Life Conference will focus on calling people back to forgiveness and redemption through a renewed understanding of Biblical texts on the issues. It begins at 9:15 a.m. and concludes at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 6 in the auditorium at Concordia University College of Alberta. Lunch is included in the registration fee ($25 before October 31; $30 after).

Registration forms are available on the conference website at www.LoveLifeEdmonton.com  or through the ABC District Office at 780-474-0063.
