Embracing All of Who We Are: Body, Soul, and Sexuality

Nov. 28, 2018 12:15 pm – 1:15 pm
Great Room, Blanchard Hall

An interfaith lunch and open dialogue with Rev. Lacette Cross, pastor of New Beginnings Christian Church in Richmond, VA. Rev. Cross sees talking sex & faith for wholeness as a justice issue that calls for intentional conversation and authentic engagement. Her purpose for being here and creating Will You Be Whole is to do just that.

The journey to wholeness is best traveled with others. Rev. Cross is intentional in creating safe space for open, honest dialogue that fosters a spirit of sharing, healing and hope. She loves helping people bring together the two key parts of who we are – our sexuality and spirituality.

Open to the College community.
