Colorado Group Challenges Youth to Choose Purity

.- Bob Lemming is serious about encouraging kids to choose chastity, and with good reason. His three sons will soon be reaching the age where they are faced with the same difficult questions facing teens and young people today. “They’re starting so young”, Lemming said, referring to teens that regularly come to him asking if there is any redemption for their sexual mistakes. “It’s about the heart”, he said, “Christ came to forgive.”

That message, and that of the Denver-based group, Pure by Choice, which Lemming directs, seems to be taking root. Last year, their annual youth rally drew over 4,000 participants to the Denver University campus and this year they plan to fill the 8,000-seat capacity Denver Coliseum.

Lemming noted that, last year “many youth for the first time committed to purity and several thousands re-committed their values and stood with others throughout the state.”

This year, the February 27th rally will feature comedian and abstinence speaker Keith Deltano and South African Christian rock band Tree 63.

According to Lemming, “multi-denominational churches and community organizations in Colorado came together about 8 years ago to organize an annual sexual purity rally. Pure by choice was organized in 2003 to take the movement to the next level by creating a large state wide rally, workshops for parents and youth leaders and helping to connect youth, parents and youth leaders with abstinence resources.”
