Free in Christ to Care for the Neighbor: Lutheran Youth Talk about Human Sexuality
This is an archived resource
Since this resource was created in 2006, some of the interactive pieces are no longer supported, such as a survey, blogs, a poll, and email replies. But there are still many great pieces of this project to check out. The videos and their messages are creative, anecdotal, and fun. The scrollable content is very informative. And you can find a small icon of a green cell phone on the far right edge of most of the pages that, if clicked, will launch some "voicemail recordings" of what some youth think about that page's topic.
|This adaptation of the December 2006 study Free in Christ to Serve the Neighbor will engage senior high youth through music, movie clips, stories from young people, and activities. Bible study, prayer, and ELCA social teachings provide a foundation for youth as they reflect on topics such as:|
- When is sex OK?
- How do creation and sin impact my view of sex?
- How do I respond to the way sexuality is depicted in popular culture?
"Free in Christ to Care for the Neighbor" invites youth to apply a faith perspective as they comment on the world they live in. Each of the six sessions features a take-home handout to help families continue the discussion. Youth and leaders will be able to log on to an accompanying website and share their ideas in an online discussion forum.
Through "Free in Christ to Care for the Neighbor," senior high youth can provide written feedback to the Task Force on ELCA Studies on Sexuality while the task force writes the first draft and proposed social statement on human sexuality.
