CHICAGO, IL (May 3, 2018) – Registration is now open for the next Embrace webinar, which will be a conversation with Dennis Edwards, lead pastor of Sanctuary Covenant Church, a justice-minded ECC congregation in the Minneapolis area. The discussion will focus on “Just Sexuality: Exploring the Intersections of Justice and Human Sexuality.”

The webinar will be held on Thursday, May 17, from 12 to 1 p.m. (CDT), at the Embrace website. Click here to register.

The discussion will engage questions that include: Is it possible to both be just and to uphold a traditional sexual ethic? In what ways has the evangelical church failed to love LGBTQ+ people well? How can the church engage in lament together and how can we be and do better?

Questions can be emailed in advance to be considered at

The conversation will be facilitated by Michelle Sanchez, the executive minister of Make and Deepen Disciples for the ECC.

Embrace is a suite of human sexuality discipleship resources and experiences in harmony with the ECC’s adopted position, the center of which is “Faithfulness in heterosexual marriage, celibacy in singleness.”
