Anticipating A [Baptist] Conference on Sexuality and Covenant

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 offered at the Conference.  We hope you’ll join us for the full presentation!

“A Baptist family conversation about sexuality needs to talk about a whole lot of things. I am glad that we are surfacing so many different issues. But I have thought from the beginning that the very most important thing we could talk about would be the issue of covenant. I believe that covenant is a, if not the, single best way that has emerged in the great Christian theological-ethical-ecclesial tradition to talk about what we are supposed to do with our sexuality, and for that matter, our relationality. It is certainly not the only way that Christianity has addressed sexuality and relational bonding—but I submit to you that it is the best way. I propose it to you as a moral norm worth not just retaining but strengthening in our own lives and in the ministry of our churches.”
