Congregational Guidebooks

The Religious Institute publishes study guides to help congregations address a variety of sexuality issues. These practical guides are written for a broad spectrum of U.S. religious congregations. It is our hope that they will be relevant or adaptable to Jewish, Christian, Unitarian Universalist, and Islamic faith communities.

Theological Frameworks

The Religious Institute convenes colloquia of prominent scholars, theologians and clergy from a range of faith traditions to develop Open Letters to Religious Leaders. The Open Letters provide a theological framework to help religious leaders advocate for sexual justice in their congregations and in the public square.

The Religious Institute has published a book for general audiences on sexual justice issues: Rev. Debra Haffner’s Meditations on the Good News: Reading the Bible for Today.
