|Freedom to Love||Spiritual Growth||Youth & Adult||Christopher West||2007||DVD set with guide||3 dvds; 5 sessions||
What is Freedom?
The world tells us that freedom is the ability to do what we want, whenever we want, with whomever we want. But has this led to strong relationships, strong families, or strong communities? Since the days of the "sexual revolution," the opposite has played out. Sexual chaos, exploitation, broken families, and a lot of pain have been the result of "freedom".
Recognizing the world's confusion, Blessed John Paul II proclaimed the Theology of the Body -- a profound message of love and human sexuality. He turned the notion of freedom on its head, declaring it to be selfless rather than selfish. He says "freedom exists for the sake of love". Authentic freedom, therefore, always asks "what is the good of the other person," not "what's in it for me?"
In this powerful, five-part study for young adults, popular author and presenter Christopher West lays out a convincing and refreshing road map to living a life of freedom. The concepts presented in this study will change everything, including your worldview.
Freedom to Love is ideal for college campus and parish young adult ministries and addresses critical questions.

Galatians is a study that will reignite your love for God as you learn of the astonishing love God has for you.|
