Sexting, Social Media and Staying Safe Online - Preston
@Preston Minster, Church Street, Preston, PR1 3BT
Young people who send and receive sexts are more likely to engage in early sexual behaviours that brings with it a range of emotional, sexual and physical risks. In a culture that ‘rates’ teen boys for sexual activity & ‘shames' girls, technology plays a significant role in amplifying the pressures many young people feel oppressed by. Led by Rachel Gardner, Youthscape, this one-day seminar will equip youth practitioners and parents to respond positively to the curiosity and peer pressure young people experience, and will equip you with ways to empower young people to engage in critical thinking about what they see, hear and do.
Championing Economic Justice in Your Workplace - London
@LICC, St Peter's, Vere Street, London W1G 0DQ
Economist, theologian, and church minister Andy Hartropp will teach on economic justice and lead attendees in examining how we might ‘do justice’ in and through our workplace roles.
God has called us to live in a way that declares his sovereignty over all things. And this is not a topic reserved for charities, thought-leaders, or brave B-Corp entrepreneurs. Championing justice in economic life is central to our own witness as followers of Christ. The values we display in our work testify to God’s own values – his love, his justice – and to his place in our lives, as well as our place in his workmanship.
