280.2: Let’s Talk about Sex (OT Gospel Doctrine Lesson 11, Sunday School)

March 17, 2018

Engaging Gospel Doctrine

“How Can I Do This Great Wickedness?”


Sexuality is an aspect of life universally experienced but difficult to talk about. And the assigned readings are no exception. This episode  engages with the stories of Dinah, Tamar, and Potiphar’s wife and models a constructive approach to talking about sexuality in a Church context. We also discuss both chastity and sexual transgression.
