Wired for Intimacy presentation slated for tonight

One of the many Wired For Intimacy posters hanging up in Brown Hall. The Jan. 16 date has been changed to Jan 30.

Knoxville — A new chapel group is launching Wednesday, and the residence of Brown Hall will get a sneak peek today.

Jarrod Justice, a graduate counseling intern, will present Wired for Intimacy at 9 p.m., Tuesday, in the second-floor lobby.

The presentation will cover sexuality in our culture, particularly among men.  The conversation will include topics of pornography, sexual addiction and other topics related to sexuality.

Along with the presentation that is specifically for men in the Johnson community, the Wired for Intimacy program will also become a Wednesday chapel group. The time and location have not yet been determined.

“They’re getting a little snippet of it on Tuesday, but he is offering an extended, more in-depth study of this as a Wednesday afternoon chapel group,” Weldon Davis, Brown Hall resident director, said.

Justice if fulfilling a curriculum requirement as part of the Counseling Center with the presentation.

Davis said he thinks it will be good for the guys, as they can “dig a little deeper,” and ask themselves just “what is this wired for intimacy in the realm of how we were created, how God intended us to be, and things like that.”

Those who enjoy the Tuesday presentation are encouraged to participate in the Wednesday afternoon chapel group, also run by Justice.  Men in the Johnson community are encouraged to participate in both events.

Contact Weldon Davis for more information on the Wired for Intimacy presentation or upcoming chapel group.
