Sex Receives Attention at EMU

Sexuality will be the focus of public lectures at Eastern Mennonite University on Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 20-21.

Keith Graber Miller, professor of Bible, religion and philosophy at Goshen (Ind.) College, will open the series 11 a.m. Tuesday with a Seminary Chapel presentation entitled “Sexuality: God’s Gift.”

At 8 p.m. that day, he will focus on “Seeking Good Sex(uality)” in Common Grounds Coffeehouse in the basement of University Commons.

Miller will continue the series 10 a.m. Wednesday in University Chapel with the topic, “Shameless Sexuality.” He will conclude with a talk at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Campus Center Greeting Hall on “Seeking Good Sex(uality) 2.”

Miller’s specialty areas at Goshen College include contemporary Christian ethics, religion and politics, religion and sexuality, and adoption and childhood issues. He has written four books and speaks frequently in congregations and conferences on these and other topics.

In addition, Miller has co-led Goshen’s SST (Study-Service Term) semesters with his spouse Ann in Cambodia, Cuba and Costa Rica, China and the Dominican Republic.

Miller has a BA degree from Franklin (Ind.) College, an MDiv from Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary, Elkhart, Ind., and a PhD from Emory University in Atlanta.

“Keith Graber Miller is uniquely gifted and prepared to guide our campus-wide conversations on sexuality,” said Brian Martin Burkholder, EMU campus pastor. “He brings a wealth of experience engaging the themes and dynamics of sexuality with young adults both in the classroom and as a faculty mentor.”

The series is sponsored by EMU Campus Ministries and is open to the public free of charge.
