I feel like we have had a lot of heavy conversations the past couple weeks. I also don't think that's a bad thing.
But i am really proud of the way you guys have taken it. Talking about things like gay marriage and women in the church have the potential to cause some serious disagreement. You all handle it so freaking well. So thank you for that, and I'm gonna ask that you bear with me through one more of those conversations.
It just seems like the stage is set for a conversation about what Biblical marriage and relationships DO look like. We've heard a lot about what things shouldn't look like and it seems really depressing. I don't want to leave you feeling like marriage is this super hard complicated thing that isn't even worth the effort. That's just not true.
But that does mean that this Sunday during IMPACT things might seem awkward. My promise to you is that I will be as conscious of that as possible, and make it as chill as I can. Sex is never easy to talk about, but we're not looking at this like its 9th grade health class. The Bible has some pretty important (and relevant) things to say about how you are supposed to look at sexuality and marriage.
So don't shy away because it could be weird. It might be, but it will also hopefully help you see your male or female-ness in a new and beautiful light.
Thanks for being ok with these deeper talks :)
