Sex + God = Hot + Holy

If you read Keeping the Faith with any regularity, you know I write about sex and faith, a lot.  Both are interesting topics and both matter.  Sex is wonderful, and being sexual is important, but I am at a point in my life where I am not willing to have sex without love, and I cannot find love without sharing my faith, so I struggle.  Throw in that I am a single mother, and beginning a new relationship, and sex becomes complicated. 

I am looking for guidance and answers, so I gathered a group of professionals to help. I am very excited about this evening and I hope you will join us.  You can’t talk about sex without getting a little racy, and you can’t talk about God without getting a little fired up, so it promises to be a provocative and fun night.  I can’t guarantee that it won’t get heated, or the language won't get colorful, but it will not get vulgar.

Regardless of your your religion, or your level of observance, you should join us.  We will discuss faith, the presence of sex in our religious teachings, and how to connect the dots to be sexually satisfied while embracing a comfortable and satisfying sexual and religious life.
