Ryan and Bethany Bomberger, both graduates of Messiah College, were recently awarded the 2012 Christian Stewardship Alumni Award from the top-rated college. Ryan, a native of Lancaster County, PA, will be returning to his alma mater to address the issue of abortion in the context of “Social Justice”. The unique multimedia presentation, entitled “The Social Injustice of Abortion” takes an unconventional approach to the human rights issue, combining the deeply personal with the alarming evidential. “The Social Injustice of Abortion” provides a deep and substantive look at the abortion issue with many surprises. The audience will see how this human rights issue, as the graphics of the event suggest, inextricably tied to other crucial issues of justice.
Various resources from The Radiance Foundation’s TooManyAborted.com awareness campaign will be made available.
Ryan’s sense of true justice stems from being adopted into a multi-racial family of 15, where 10 of the children were adopted as newborns or from the foster care system. Adopted and loved, Ryan flourished in emotionally, academically, creatively and spiritually. He witnessed, throughout his life, the servant leadership of his parents who regularly engaged their community with compassionate (mostly anonymous) assistance to those in need. So, surrounded by faith-driven examples, Ryan’s passion for the broken began at a young age.
As co-founder of The Radiance Foundation, a life-affirming educational non-profit that he began with his wife, Bethany, he loves challenging the status quo by illuminating the truth.
The original media created for each of The Radiance Foundation’s events always receive high praise. More importantly, the creative approach has helped to reshape people’s hearts and minds on a variety of issues.
The Radiance Foundation is honored to be able to address Messiah students in this event (approved as an alternate chapel) and the general public who is welcome to join in the conversation. They are grateful to the Messiah College Right to Life Club (MCRTLC) for the invitation to explore this civil rights issue and provide a forum where questions can be asked in a great learning environment. The Q&A portion will be moderated by Professor James LaGrand.
Life-affirming organizations, who daily address this justice issue, will be on-hand to provide information about their work and how students can move from awareness to action.
Joseph O’Donnell, an officer of MCRTLC, is available for any students who may have questions about the event. He can be reached at [email protected].
