Silent No More: Responsible Sexuality and the Role of the Church -
Instructor Dr. Genetta Y. Hatcher
This course will engage students in a theological conversation of "sexual responsibility".  Recognizing that sex is a sacred gift from God. The Church must begin to intentionally engage in conversations about responsible sexuality, particularly as studies show that Christians are having sex beyond the scope of marriage.  The Church can no longer remain silent nor relegate itself to only speak about sex and sexuality within the context of abstinence or celibacy. Christians must begin to engage in a healthy and holistic view of themselves as both spiritual and sexual beings and the responsibility thereof.
