I may be gaining a bit of a reputation within my church circle of acquaintances and colleagues. Last week, I was at a conference about The Bible and Sexuality at Queen's Theological College; this week, I am at Five Oaks to receive training in a new sexuality education curriculum the United Church of Canada is adopting.
Given that sexual norms and behaviours saturate children and youth in our society, shouldn't the church be adding its voice to the mix, offering a faithful and intentional engagement of this central part of our human identity? I happen to think so.
Although once I have this training (which will in turn allow me to train other facilitators in the program), I'm not sure that I'll be overwhelmingly busy in this regard.
