NPR Goes to Church


The National Public Radio piece I taped two weeks ago ran on "Morning Edition" today. Reporter Rachel Martin did an excellent job of portraying the important role that faith based institutions can play in providing sexuality education to young people. The story features an "Our Whole Lives" program at a UCC church in Washington State and interviews with young people. It also includes an interview with me!

In case you missed it, you can listen to "Church Tries Its Hand At Sex Education" on your computer at http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=7867316

P.S. Today is my 25th wedding anniversary. My spouse is a loyal reader -- happy anniversary to my life partner. What an amazing life we have created together! I am grateful and humbled to reach this milestone.

I heard you, you were great! Well-done story, especially the interview with the young woman who is choosing to "save herself for marriage", but says these sexuality classes help her/ equip her to better make informed decisions. --S
