The Choice-Driven Life
January 31, 2011 Length: 32:10
A talk by Linda Couri, a former Planned Parenthood employee who has both professional and personal experience with abortion issues, will be presenting an inside perspective on the pro-choice mindset. What are the values, goals, and motivations behind those who are pro-choice and what can we do to best address this complex and often hostile audience? Linda, who now serves as Associate Director of Lay Ministry Formation for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago, will share her story and her own uncomfortable yet solid reconversion to the Christian faith.
This talk was given at the 3rd annual Sanctity of Life Sunday presentation of the Orthodox Christian Clergy Association of Greater Chicago on January 30, 2011.
"You have been a blessing to me in ways that words cannot possibly explain. For this I'm indebted to you for life already, for in your podcasts you have unlocked the beauty of Orthodox Christianity that has been reflected for over two thousand years. As I listen to your commentaries, my soul is moved because I reflect on the true meaning of what it means to be a Christian in the light of the apostles and compare my own state of unworthiness to that which I aspire to become."
