Dialogues on Sexuality

April/May 2021

There's more to sexuality than the birds and the bees. Using a new resource and video from Augsburg Fortress, Pastor Mike Wilker and Elizabeth Hann will co-lead seven dialogues on sexuality. Our goal is to talk in our faith community about what it means for us to be whole and healthy sexual beings. Topics include patriarchy in the church, purity/shame culture, sex and marriage, transgender identity, and healthy sexual ethics. The booklet costs $10 each and are available from the church office ( or 202-543-4200). The dialogues will be offered Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. beginning on April 21 and Sundays at 8:30 a.m. beginning April 25. Please sign up for a time slot at this link (
