It’s time for Sacred Cliturgy, a monthly bonus episode of Sanctuary Woman where we discover what would happen if we talked honestly about sex with one another?
You see sexuality is inherently VERY GOOD. But, let’s face it – it’s complicated.
It’s especially complicated when we don’t talk about it.
So I asked the question: What if Christian women started talking about sex – like for real? What if we talked about and understood our own bodies, our own sexuality in a more healthy and holistic way – not in spite of our Christian faith, but in light of it? What if that led to better sex, better sexuality, better sex education, better single lives and better marriages?
We need to talk.
I’m Morgan, and I’m here to talk about it.
In this episode I bring on my good friend Elizabeth Gregory Brown. Elizabeth holds a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy, has been teaching college students about sexuality and theology for the past 8 years, and writes about God and sex on her blog Every Body Holy.
I invited Elizabeth to have a conversation with me to open up the Sacred Cliturgy bonus series because she’s an in real life friend – we go to church together, have been in a small group together, we have children around the same age, and in this last year have connected in a deeper way over our shared passions and interests of helping people find freedom from sexual shame and body shame and toward seeing ourselves and our bodies as very good – just as God sees them. Just as God made them.
I hope you enjoy my conversation with Elizabeth about healthy and holy sexual formation and why these conversations are worth having one another.
