About this event

Christians confess that God comes to us in the flesh, incarnate in Jesus Christ. How is our sexuality implicated in our love for God? What sources and norms do Christians appeal to for their understanding of “just love”? How might diverse sexual practices express “the body’s grace”? How do contemporary conversations about gender, gender queering, consent, etc. impact Christian talk about sex?
