In the dangerous worlds of analog parents with digital teens, parents must take control. Arming themselves with knowledge is the first step, but summoning the courage to establish clear boundaries, rules, and consequences is of equal importance.
Imagine a book dealing with sex and sexuality, based on the teaching of a man who never married and who quite likely never engaged in sexual intercourse. What I’m describing is the teaching of the late Pope John Paul II in his Theology of the Body.
Founded in 1996, Marriage Savers® is a ministry that equips local communities, principally through local congregations, to help men and women to: Prepare for lifelong marriage, strengthen existing marriages, and
restore troubled marriage.
Engaged Encounter (EE) is a retreat designed to provide an atmosphere in which engaged couples, couples considering engagement or newly married couples can enrich the beginning of their marriage relationship. EE provides powerful tools designed to foster communication and mutual decision-making throughout the couple's marriage. The retreat starts Friday evening and ends Saturday evening. During the retreat each couple privately shares with each other their values, desires, and goals for their future as a married couple.
PRAYER FOR LIFE
Lord God, thank You for creating human life in Your image.
Thank You for my life and the lives of those I love.
Thank You for teaching us through Scripture the value You place on life.
Help me to uphold the sanctity of life in my church and community.
Give me the strength to stand up to those forces
that seek to destroy the lives of those most vulnerable,
the unborn, the infirm and the elderly.
Today I commit myself never to be silent, never to be passive, never to be forgetful of respecting life.
I commit myself to protecting and defending the sacredness of life
according to Your will, through Christ our Lord. Amen.Anglicans for Life405 Frederick AvenueSewickley, PA 15143
