Let’s Talk About Sex: An Ethics Conversation for All
Wendy VanderWal Gritter
Sunday, October 11 • 7 – 8 PM

A rules-based approach to sex hasn’t served the church very well. The harm runs deep. There must be a better way. Dr. Wendy VanderWal Gritter will help us understand how reclaiming our agency, sharpening our discernment, sharing wisdom and mutual support, and focusing on flourishing are steps to embracing God’s good gift of sex.
