A Time to Build: Creating Sexually Healthy Faith Communities, 2nd Edition
Newly revised and greatly expanded edition. A Time to Build: Creating Sexually Healthy Faith Communities outlines the building blocks of a sexually healthy faith community. Sections rigorously examine sexually healthy religious professionals, worship on sexuality issues, pastoral care on sexuality, youth and adult sexuality education, safe congregations policies, welcoming and affirming programs, and how congregations can advocate for sexual and spiritual wholeness in their communities. This resource also includes checklists for congregations to assess their own programs and policies, and presents ideas for strengthening the commitment to be a sexually healthy congregation.
