    • Faith formation resource for young adults on human sexuality

    • For use in congregational and campus ministry settings

Our inherent value and worth comes from God’s love for us, but our modern world is filled with sexual expression that too often leads us away from the life of Christ. As Christians seeking to live a life worthy of our calling and desiring to pass along these values to our children and youth, these books (Leader Guide and Participant Book) offer session plans with activities for Young Adults (ages 18–30) to explore issues of sexuality in the context of our faith, building on the foundational book of the same name and as part of the These Are Our Bodies program resource. Session topics include:

    • Holiness

    • Intimacy

    • Covenant

    • Love

    • Biology

    • Communication

    • What is Sacred?

    • Power and Parity

    • Mind, Body, and Soul

    • Brokenness and Shame

    • Our Bodies: Currency and Creators
