Sexuality & the Black Church: Home

Course Description

This course seeks to work with students (1) to explore the variety of approaches to sexuality in the Bible and the Black Church traditions; (2) to understand why sexuality in general has been a “taboo”subject for the Black Church and community; (3) to help the faith community develop healthy attitudes and behaviors toward sexually related issues within the Black church and community; (4) to help the faith community to create safe places for discussion and fellowship. This course will challenge the student to create a “holistic” theology of human sexuality for the faith community as it seeks to encourage growth in moral accountability with compassion and mercy.
