An event for parents of youth.

I want to discuss how to have transformative conversations when our teenagers say things like:

  • “I don’t want to go to church. It’s boring.”
  • “I don’t know if I believe in God. I don’t experience God or hear God in my life the way I hear other people talk at church about it.”
  • “I self-identify as straight. Joanne identifies as …. Joanne prefers pronouns …..”

How to respond with …

…telling our own stories as the foundation of passing on direction and a faith to your teenager.
…asking good questions that uncover assumptions, and ways we see ourselves, shape our identities, and make commitments, before others and out of our relationship to the God of the universe we know through Jesus Christ.
