Lecture Title: Living as a Christian Family in a Culture of Unbelief
Thursday, February 11, 2016 – 7pm
Lecture description: One of the most important tasks of the Christian family is to pass on sound moral and religious teachings to the next generation. Particularly in the wake of the Obergefell decision and with the rise of transgender ideology, it is critical that parents take their role as primary educators seriously. Yet these same cultural trends also pose serious threats to parents’ ability to fulfill their educational responsibilities. In her lecture, Dr. Moschella will discuss these timely issues, explaining the nature of parental rights, outlining the current challenges to those rights, and suggesting ways to overcome these challenges.
