Sex, Consent and Christianity

Sex, Consent and Christianity

Sex and Consent have been hot topics as of late.  Even so, churches often avoid talking about these two topics from the pulpit, and when they do, they don't necessarily do it well.  Join us as sex therapist and author of the book "Sex, God and the Conservative Church: Erasing Shame from Sexual Intimacy" discusses sex and consent in today's culture and how the church fits in.
