ABOUT LISA GRAHAM MCMINN
Lisa Graham McMinn, Ph.D., is a Professor of Sociology and Writer in Residence at George Fox University. She describes herself as a farmer, Quaker, beekeeper, and sometimes potter. Lisa’s job, she says, “is to love Creation–to laugh, hope, nurture, and mostly, to pay attention.” In her book, Sexuality & Holy Longing, Lisa strives to reframe our thinking of sexuality, encouraging social change in the way we view ourselves & our sexuality.
In this episode, I invite you to learn:
- How to become cultural critics of the messages portrayed in the media about love, dating, and marriage.
- How both culture and some faith based institutions help AND hurt our notions of sex- and how to better understand the whole picture.
- That you’re not alone in your struggles if your love life just doesn’t look like the movies – and what to do about it.
