Recently national attention has been focused on the NFL and the important issue of domestic violence and abuse. Because it’s not only an individual problem but also a societal problem, it calls for a just and gracious response from all. This week’s LinC will help students consider their biblically based and just response to domestic violence and abuse. Key Scriptures: Isaiah 1:16-17; Matthew 10:16-33; James 2:14-26; 3:13-18.
Those of us who remember tennis great Andre Agassi’s Canon commercial can’t hear the word image without recalling his now famous tagline, “Image is everything.” Recently images of female celebrities have been more than “everything”—they’ve been everywhere. Next week’s LinC uses the recent celebrity picture-hacking scandal to help youth talk about God’s perspective on the body, body image, and respect for others.
