Day of Dialogue Prepares Teens for Sensitive Advocacy

Christian parents generally want kids to live a life modeled after Jesus Christ. He never held back from pouring out His love for hurting people, while simultaneously sharing life truths. That can happen today, on the Day of Dialogue.

Bullying, homosexuality and identity have become hot topics these days—not only in public schools, but also in the culture at large. So how's a Christian teen to respond? First Timothy 4:12 says, "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity." To equip teens to live out that principle, Focus on the Family annually sponsors a national event—Day of Dialogue®—that enables students to express their Biblical viewpoint in a loving and redemptive way.

The Day of Dialogue—happening today April 19, 2012—challenges students to reflect the true model presented by Jesus Christ in the Bible—who didn't back away from speaking truth, but neither held back in pouring out His incredible, compassionate love for hurting and vulnerable people. On the website, students will find several helpful resources, including "Conversation Cards" and poster and t-shirt designs to help raise awareness.

Parents and teens together can make a world of difference.

"Preach the gospel at all times; when necessary use words." Saint Francis of Assisi
