Local Christian youth event  advocates sexual integrity

 

Silver Ring Thing at Cedar Springs High School Oct. 18

Between 100,000 and 300,000 underage girls are sold for sex in the U.S. every year. By the age of 14, 94 percent of children will have been exposed to pornography. Over 50 percent of teenagers have engaged in sexual intercourse by the time they’re 18-years-old. One third of teens who get pregnant seek an abortion.

There is a dire need for the truth in this broken culture.

Silver Ring Thing (SRT) is an international youth ministry that defies today’s culture of the meet-up, hook-up, break-up mindset that contributes to brokenness. The organization’s newest tour, EXPLICIT TRUTH: Leaving nothing merely implied, presents the truth about love, relationships, sexuality and identity.

“Our culture is dealing with an epidemic of sexual brokenness,” said SRT President Jason Burtt. “Our children are victims of an ideology of misinformation and mistruth. It’s time to give real, honest answers to the questions being asked and challenge this generation to live with great dignity and worth.”

The live concert-style event will be held at Cedar Springs High School on October 18 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. This is a free event and an optional ring is available for $20. There will be a parent’s session beginning at 7 p.m., which is designed to help parents support their child’s decision.

The SRT tour team, a group of 20-somethings from across the U.S., encourages students to control their bodies and hold out for something better—sexual intimacy within the bonds of marriage. During a high-energy, action packed event, tour team members share their stories of success, failure, forgiveness and hope using skits, humor, drama, commercial parodies and personal testimonies.

SRT will be promoting these values and ideals with the hopes of reaching as many teens as possible.
