Sex, Bodies, Spirit (Metropolitan Community Churches)


Over the past year, MCC has witnessed a renewal regarding the intersection of sexuality and spirituality. First, they enjoyed the online symposium in fall 2015, followed by monthly discussions, and then they experienced a stimulating workshop at the MCC General Conference 2016.

They are now delighted to announce an ongoing informational and discussion series that will advance this topic among clergy and churches from any denomination.   All are invited to attend!

This is also opportunity for MCC clergy to fulfill the continuing education requirement for annual licensure.

Rev. Dr. Robin Gorsline and Malachi Grennell are the authors of an exciting blog about sex, bodies, and spirit (, and they are bringing their passion and expertise to a monthly gathering on Adobe Connect that will address issues of sex and spirit, in order to further advance this concern and educate all of us around the ongoing need for our churches.

The group will meet on the third Thursday of each month from 3:00 to 4:00 PM Eastern Time (generally 7:00 – 8:00 pm UTC), and will qualify for continuing education credits for MCC clergy (.5 units per session).

This is open to all people, whether clergy or lay. This opportunity is offered free of charge.
