Jeff's topic: Reframing the Conversation about Sexual Ethics in Congregations and Homes Drawing from nearly two decades of working with young adults, as well as his recent book, Sexy: The Quest for Erotic Virtue in Perplexing Times, Dr. Mallinson will discuss ways in which churches and families can recover the heart of sexual ethics. He contends that Christian teaching helps us unite desire (eros) with unconditional love (agape), and that, if we recover this gospel-centered approach to love, we can transform a teaching that often pushes people away from the church, to something that draws people into the community of Christ.
