Speaker today to explain ‘Sex as a Response to the Contemporary World’
Speaker Dr. Sarah Borden of Wheaton College will give a presentation, "Sex as a Response to the Contemporary World," from noon to 1 p.m. today, April 4, in O'Shaughnessy Educational Center auditorium. Everyone's welcome.
The presentation is part of a series, ''Gender Vocations,'' sponsored by ''Beyond Career to Calling,'' a Lilly Endowment-funded UST project that is part of a nationwide effort to stimulate the idea of vocation on college campuses.
Dr. Mary Lemmons, UST Philosophy Department, describes the topic: “If sexual distinctiveness does not undermine sexual equality and freedom, then perhaps our vocation and calling in the world are related in some way to sexual distinctiveness. Such a claim may be hard to make, given our long history of sexual discrimination and the repressive limitation of roles, but perhaps it is worth asking, again, whether God speaks to us and calls us in our very sexual being. Is sexual distinctiveness relevant to our vocation and our role in the contemporary world?”
