Mission Revive - Theology of the Body Thursday with Sharon Flanagan
Join your Mission Revive host Bob Newberry (he is at the helm today) for our first in an eight part series - Theology of the Body Thursday. Sharon and Bob will start to unpack the foundation of TOB and give us a glimpse into what God intended for our bodies. Sharon Flanagan has worked for the Diocese of Syracuse as a Chastity and Theology of the Body Educator. She has presented these topics many times to youth and adults in parishes and schools. Sharon received a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Stony Brook University and a Master’s Degree in Education from Syracuse University. She is a graduate of the Theology of the Body Institute and has received certification through the Institute. Sharon has been married to her husband, Jack, for 22 years and has three stepchildren.
For more information on how to invite Sharon to speak at your parish or with your group, you can reach her here: firstname.lastname@example.org
