"Prophets of Hope" Talks:
"Living, Dying and the Power of Presence" - As a broadcaster, filmmaker and entertainer, I have had the honour of bringing some remarkable stories to the screen. I’ve interviewed multi-millionaires, dreamers, scientists, whiz-kids and rock-stars. But nothing could prepare me for the jaw-dropping stories from my most recent films. They come from the front lines of a culture war that is raging in our parliaments, hospitals, schools and homes. An ideology that says some lives are worth living and some are not. New laws (or lack thereof) suggest ‘open season’ on the vulnerable - the unborn, the sick, the disabled and the marginalized. The very lives we as a society have sought to protect since the dawn of civilization. Living, Dying and the Power of Presence includes my own personal journey as husband and father of six, along with stories and video clips from my recent films: "Fatal Flaws:Legalizing Assisted Death", "Vulnerable: The Euthanasia Deception" and the "National March for Life" . The talk is life-affirming, hopeful, heart-warming and challenging!
"Prophets of Hope in a Physically Distanced World" (with optional questions and activities) - These days of 'physical' distancing shouldn’t keep us from reaching out to those that need us most. In fact, using today’s technology, we can reach out like never before! However, families must strike a healthy balance between FaceTime on phones — and REAL ‘face’ time at home. Kevin’s talk focuses on becoming a ‘prophet of hope’ in the lives of those around us, employing the 'power of presence’ as the greatest gift we can give each other in these troubled days. Whether online or in person, let’s make LOVE be the centre of all we do, cherishing each moment that we have been given!
"Children: The Ultimate Gift" (with optional questions and family activiities) - “The future of humanity passes by way of the family.” - St. John Paul II. Children are indeed a blessing from our Lord, and a gift to the family at every stage: from conception through adulthood. Through the use of music, puppets and Kevin’s powerful testimony as a father of six, this talk underscores the unique gift of children to each member of the family unit. God has a plan and purpose for each of us, no matter our age or ability! Children need not be adults to impact our church and the world... they already do by their very presence! Welcomed into the church through Holy Baptism and fed with the Eucharist at Holy Communion, our children receive unique gifts from the Holy Spirit at Confirmation. The Sacramental life of a child paves the way for each to become a witness to Christ, a gift to the village and a prophet of hope to the world. Never forget the power of your child’s presence at Mass!
