Less Balking, More Talking: Good Sex Education in the Roman Catholic Church as Imagined by Young Adult Women
Emily Kahm (Iliff School of Theology and University of Denver)

Colloquium. [Notes] This in-progress qualitative study on religious sexuality formation in young adult women who were raised Catholic asked participants to imagine their ideal sexuality education experience, both by re-imagining their own upbringing and by explaining how they would teach their own children about sex and sexuality. Participants emphasized the need for sexuality education to be heavily conversational, to respect the knowledge and experiences of the learner regardless of their age, and to emphasize the dignity of the learner foremost. Further themes may arise with continued research.

Lived Religion of Coaches: A Phenomenological Study
Matt Hoven (St. Joseph's College, University of Alberta)

Colloquium. [Notes] Research in religious education has a poor track record in the area of sport. Too often the work is only practice-based and can even disgrace the societal significance of sport. In response, this study examines the lived religion of coaches in competitive youth sports. Through a phenomenological approach, the study presents how coaches describe their religious experiences, beliefs and practices in their everyday coaching. Insight drawn from this qualitative research leads religious educators to consider implications within the field of sport.
