Christopher West announced, “Yes, I have beautiful feet,” to about 350 who attended a presentation open to the public Friday night, March 3, at St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Wichita.
He explained by saying, “Remember how scripture says, ‘How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news?’ Well, I’ve come with good news about our creation as male and female, good news about the meaning of sex and gender, good news about our sexual desires, good news about the healing and redemption of sexuality in Christ.”
West said the church has good news to proclaim and that the faithful should be ready to shout it from the roof tops by the way they live their lives.
West also spoke to about 240 men at a Men’s Conference Saturday at St. Francis of Assisi Parish.
Speaking on the theme, “This is my Body: Into the Wilds of the Masculine Soul,” West explained the good news of the gospel through the lens of St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. He presented a positive vision of what it means to be human, and particularly what it means to be a man today.
West, co-founded the Cor Project in 2010 as a membership and outreach organization with a global mission to help men and women around the world learn, live, and share the Theology of the Body.
