Divorce and Young People

This seminar will explore the impact of divorce on young people. Usually (both in the church and culture) we have seen divorce as a painful occurence that can nevertheless be overcome if the young person can be taught to think correctly about the divorce of his or her parents ("it isn't your fault"). Yet, such a perspective tends to distract us from larger realities. Divorce at it's core thrusts young people into questioning their very existence, "If I exist because of the relationship of these two people, who am I, and how can I be in the world, if they are no longer together?" This seminar will examine this all to common cultural reality from a phiosophical and theological perspective, seeing what difference this makes for our ministries.
