Southern Baptist Leaders Hosting Sex Summit in Nashville

Stream Fox 17 newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5 am and News at 9 pm.


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Southern Baptist Convention leaders are hosting a summit in Nashville that will focus on sex. The topics will range from pornography, teen sex, homosexuality and how pastors can talk to their congregations about human sexuality.


Russell Moore, Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission president for the Southern Baptist Convention, said the summit's theme is a timely one. "So many of the questions that pastors grapple with today deal with situations that would not even have been possible a generation ago," Moore said in a press statement.


"As technology advances and the culture changes, the questions that we have to grapple with are often increasingly complex."


Panel topics include discussions on the gospel and homosexuality and the gospel and ministry in a sex-saturated world. The sessions will also focus on how the "gospel shapes a person's sexual identity, redeems sexual desire and sets free people held captive by sin."


The summit will be held from April 21-23. The event's main sessions will be streamed live on the Web for people who cannot attend.
