Sacred Conversations on Sexuality: Unmasking the WHY in the Headlines
Toward a Healthy & Whole Masculinity

Everyday, it seems a new disturbing high-profile revelation ranging from sexual misconduct to crime is revealed.  The airways are filled with much opinion and commentary for retribution but little is said with regard to helping men in the church come together and dialog for greater understanding of their sexuality, power, and deep faith perspectives on our ways of loving God, better loving ourselves and engaging in mutually healthy relationships.  This gathering will be the first in my special such opportunities.  As we are specifically providing a safe space for men to share first-hand and personal perspectives, we are limiting this initially to men only.  All men are welcome.

The Program has been provided by Mid-America Men: A Transformational Ministry for Disciples Men and, thanks to mission contributions, is at no cost to those in attendance.  Participants will be asked to bring $10 for lunch.  Reservations are necessary for a proper count so please contact Paul Koch at or at 636-221-7065.  He will be happy to explain more of what to expect at the gathering.

Sacred Conversations are facilitated by Rev. Dr. Paul Koch, Regional Minister Team, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) of Mid-America and Mid-America Men Coordinator; Dr. Belden Lane, Professor of Theological Studies, Saint Louis University; and Bill Priesmeyer, Illuman-Missouri/Southern Illinois.
