Event description

Description

We’d like to invite you to a morning of coffee, community, prayer, and conversation! Please join us as OLL hosts a special event featuring the documentary film Speaking to Sparrows. Produced by Project Light Ministries (www.projectlightministries.com) this is a film which is impacting women across all ages. Our culture is very effective at transmitting the messages that there are prerequisites for happiness and success which include a whole list of unhealthy expectations. Speaking to Sparrows speaks a hopeful message, counter to the one we are hearing from the world. The film invites each girl/woman to see themselves as beloved daughters of God. It is incredibly powerful for women to know that they are not alone, and that their worth is determined by much more than the size of their waist, their accomplishments, or their relationship status. Speaking to Sparrows fearlessly confronts issues such as body image, the pressure to be perfect and successful, sex, isolation, father wounds, abuse, eating disorders, lust and pornography. After we watch the film, we will spend the morning unpacking the topics, listening to stories, praying together and hopefully answering the age old question of “what next”? A light breakfast will be served. The group will split for the debriefing portion of the morning with the high school girls having their own break out session separate from the adult women attending.
