Words like porn, sex, and addiction are the kind of words we struggle to bring up in church. Whether we are in a small group or speaking from the pulpit, the shame that accompanies this taboo topic is overwhelming. But the longer we wait to start talking about it, the worse the problems are going to get. Marriages will fall apart, addictions will get the best of people, and our kids won’t grow up with a healthy view of sex.
Let’s start the conversation. Let’s be the type of men and women who want to help people heal. Let’s work to break down the shame by authentically talking about sex in a healthy way. In this webinar, Nick Stumbo will talk about what this looks like and share tools to help us begin creating this culture in our church, family, and relationships.
