Local Author Addresses Christian Sexuality In New Book
By Christina DeVoss
Kansas City, Mo. – It's hard to ignore the place sex has in American culture. From magazines and movies to news reports on politicians and celebrities' latest sex scandals, sex is everywhere. Lara Blackwood Pickrel's new book puts the discussion about sex in another place: church.
Pickrel is an associate minister at Hillside Christian Church and the author of Oh God, Oh God, Oh God!: Young Adults Speak Out About Sexuality and Christian Spirituality. Her book tackles issues that aren't typically up for discussion in bible study.
