|”The Threats to the Family From All Sides”|
The value and importance of family are being denigrated by groups and movements of many kinds.
The presentation will describe the importance of family, to its members, the nation and to society as a whole. The threats emanate from postmodernist ideas and critical theory, from media coverage of families and their dissolution, and from unwillingness to recognize the responsibilities that go with couple and child-parent relationships.
There will also be some recommendations as to how to strengthen the idea of family.
The initial Sunday night webinar is of no charge to you.
Deadline to register for this event is Sunday, February 5, 2023 by 6 PM EST
When: Feb 5, 2023 08:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
