Youth – Learning to Love Fat Bodies

Fri Noon | Youth

J. Nicole Morgan

So often we look at fat bodies as failures – whether it is our own or those around us. This session will look at some spiritual truths about fat bodies – that they are made in the image of God, tell us something unique about God, and are not a sign of sin. We will talk about some ways we can intentionally learn to love and honor fat bodies and what a size-inclusive world could look like. This will be a discussion-based session with the option to do a creative project as well.
