NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Southern Baptist Convention leaders are hosting a summit in Nashville that will focus on sex. The topics will range from pornography, teen sex, homosexuality and how pastors can talk to their congregations about human sexuality.

Russell Moore, Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission president for the Southern Baptist Convention, said the summit's theme is a timely one. Moore, on the commission's website, said questions about sexuality are increasingly complex in the midst of cultural changes and advances in technology.

The summit will be held from April 21-23. Panel topics include discussions on the gospel and homosexuality and the gospel and ministry in a sex-saturated world.

The event will be streamed live on the web for people who cannot attend.
