Join Dr. Jennifer Morse and Dr. David van Gend this Friday, as they share their insights regarding the consequences of changing the definition of marriage in Australia.
Both speakers draw from decades of experience, research and study, bringing both the academic and real-world insights on this subject. They will not only inform you, but also equip you to discuss the topic from a point of strength, understanding and compassion.
Attending this conference will enable you to:
- Discover how to effectively direct the conversation back on topic and highlight the consequences of redefining marriage. Learn how to prevent yourself from being pushed onto a narrow topic that others have defined.
- Learn how to refocus the debate to the actual consequences and specific harm redefining marriage inflicts on others, including children, women and even same-sex attracted persons themselves.
- Become mindful of your own terminology and how best to share your viewpoints which are valid and worthy of communication. Specifically empower your conversation with conclusive evidence that contradicts the usual misunderstanding about the "gay gene", the common belief that "children aren't impacted".
RSVP today and Join us for this informative conference.
