Current Series: DIALOGUE
FEBRUARY 4 - FEBRUARY 18

Was “the talk” a good childhood experience for anyone? Most likely, it was too awkward, too detailed, not detailed enough . . . or you didn’t have one at all. The truth is that we don’t need a “talk” about guys and girls and the new emotions and feelings that are going on inside. No, we need a conversation. We need a group where we can ask questions, where we can hear what other people are going through. So, for the next three weeks, we will not be having a “talk”; instead, we will be having a dialogue.
