A [Baptist] Conference on Sexuality and Covenant is April 19-21 at FBC Decatur, GA. The following is an excerpt from one of many plenary presentations to be offered at the Conference. We hope you’ll join us for the full presentation!

When talking does happen, it’s mostly about morality, not information about biology, health, society, birth control, pleasure, intimacy, or relationships. It’s more often closed-off dialogue with authoritative tactics, and vague and indirect communication.[i]”
