A Resource Now Available: Christians Can Be Both Faithful and Sexual

It is long past time for a bold and creative Christian response to the #MeToo movement, the potential election of a self-confessed rapist and pedophile, and a President who has bragged about sexual harassment of women. Some Christians this summer show they are deeply aligned to sexual repression (the Nashville Statement), but a more enticing prospect is to teach a sex-positive Christianity that is inclusive and science-friendly. That is what Disciples of Christ pastor, Rev. Dr. Beverly Dale is doing at the Incarnation Institute for Sex & Faith (IISF). The timely release of a webinar series entitled, is now available.

an examination and critique of various biblical passages used to justify repression and an alternative sex-positive narrative of abundance.

a consideration of sexual ethics and a moral decision-making process is presented that moves us away from a one-size-fits-all teaching. The webinars are sold through the website of the Incarnation Institute, the organization that the Dr. Dale founded in 2013.

 

"We have to find a more life-fulfilling narrative in the church, one that offers abundance and values the diverse expressions of pleasure and experience." Dale said. "But the pressure not to do so is strong. And, it is death-dealing. We cannot stand by and let people continue to be sexually wounded. Jesus taught 'life in all its abundance' and the church needs to start proclaiming that as the gospel!"
