Sexuality and Religion 2020: Goals for the Next Decade

At 1 p.m. today, the Religious Institute is releasing a major new report, "Sexuality and Religion 2020: Goals for the Next Decade."

We're holding an audio press conference. The renowned religious historian, Rev. Dr. Martin Marty, Rev. Ann Tiemeyer, National Council of Churches of Christ, and Nancy Ratzen, President of the National Council of Jewish Women will be joining me. We'll be live tweeting at #sex2020 during the hour, and the audio press conference will be posted at our web site.

You'll be able to download a copy of the report at 1 p.m. at www.religiousinstitute.org

But more importantly, you can be one of the first people to join our new Faithful Voices Network. There's a pledge you can take at our web site:

As a person of faith, I support sexual health, education, and justice in faith communities and society.

We are hoping to build a grassroots network of tens of thousands of people of faith committed to these issues, moving our work from the pulpit to the pews. Won't you go to www.religiousinstitute.org and look for the Faithful Voices Network? Sign up today and tell your friends.

More about the ten goals for the next decade tomorrow.

I'm sure there are also cases of "pew to pulpit" education and awareness -- of concerned laity trying to persuade their clergy to become more active and outspoken on sexuality issues.

Hope this new initiative empowers more people, and thus leads to more positive change!
