Here's more about each topic we'll cover:

*Intentionally Friends. Stuck in shallow, non-supportive friendships? Bring out the best in your friends and become the friend you want to be. Bask in the delight of close friends.

*Say What? Communication and Conflict. Sharpen your communication and conflict skills by learning how to say what you mean, tell yourself the truth, and listen well. Your relationships, your future spouse, children, and grandchildren will be blessed if you get this lesson right.

*How to Date the Best. In a dating relationship you not only want to find the best person, you want to be the best person. Learn how to start, end, and be in a healthy romantic relationship. Feel confident and have more peace while you date!

*Does God Want a Relationship with Me? Did you know that you were created for relationship? God designed you for relationship with Him, wants you to know Him, and gives you your identity, value, and purpose. Discover a vibrant, joyful relationship with God that sets you free.

*What About Sex? God created sex and gave it to us as a good gift. Yet, why does it seem like a curse sometimes? Explore God's good gift of sexuality, how our brains respond to sexual activity, cohabitation, relational impacts of sex, managing sex drives, pornography, sexual addiction, and God's healing and redemption. Embrace the gift of your healthy sexuality.

*Boundaries and Freedom: Drawing Healthy Lines in Relationships. Can you say yes and no to the right things? Do you know what is your responsibility and what belongs to someone else? Want to figure out how to enforce your boundaries? Utilize this lesson to help young adults identify their boundaries, know how to enforce boundaries, avoid boundary violations, and live a healthier life.

Continuing the tradition The Jewish Culture Club Convo on campus, this semester we look forward to hosting an interfaith group where shared texts, ideas, and concerns will guide our learning and conversations. Together, the group will do its best to tackle the relationship between Judaism and Christianity by exploring our core values and tenets, especially as it relates to the lives and challenges of college students. It is our hope that students will emerge with a greater understanding of 'the other,' along with further inspiration to grow themselves and better their community.

Ping Pong Convo

10/13/2017 - 11/24/2017

Fridays, 5:00pm, HAWC

Contact Info: Hoyoung (Anthony) Ahn, 310-506-6033, hoyoung.ahn@pepperdine.edu

The purpose of this Ping pong convo is to create a community where international students feel free to discuss any spiritual issue or question. With their often limited background in Christianity, it's hard for them to walk away with the central message of the traditional convocation events, thus we hope that this club convo is to create a place where international students are free to discuss their spiritual lives, cultural challenges, etc. We'll meet on the patio outside the HAWC on Friday afternoon (5:00pm) and play ping pong afterwards.
