What young adult doesn’t have questions on love and relationships? Well, for the past four weeks, a group of young adults in their 20s and 30s have been gathering in downtown Manhattan to discuss just that.
On the Facebook page for “Love & Responsibility in NYC,” the group that is organizing the events, it says that the aim is to inspire “young adults to rediscover their own dignity and flourish in their relationships.” Each week, the group examines a different reading from “Men, Women and the Mystery of Love: Practical Insights from John Paul II’s Love and Responsibility,” by Edward Sri. This week, the reading is on “Understanding the two sides of love.”
When I first saw notices for this group, I immediately thought of the show “Sex and the City,” which also examines relationships in a New York City setting. However, I’m pretty sure this group will have a drastically different take on relationships! I haven’t been able to attend, but have found the readings (which are available through a link on Facebook) very thought-provoking. The reading this week asks the question “How does a person know if he is in a relationship of authentic, committed love or just another disappointing romance that will not stand the test of time?”
The meetings are held outdoors each Tuesday night at 32 Prince Street. In case of rain, the event is held at an indoor location. Find out more at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=136852883003070.
