Pastoral Musings from Rain City

it's about 'what is church?' it's about whether 'emergent' is the latest Christian trend or something more substantial. it's musing on what it means to live the city, in America, in community, intergenerationally, at this time in history...

Real Sex

Real Sex is a book that finally seeks to honestly answer the search for an honest rationale for chastity and sexual purity. For too long the evangelical community has offered shallow platitudes, or guilt inducing law as the primary means of keeping its ranks sexually pure. The weakness of the rationale seemed to have been an opening for a contrary, liberated view which cast off all restraint. How refreshing to find someone who presents chastity as a calling and gift, while not shying away from the challenges contained therein. She also deals honestly with the reality of desire and the need for us to ask God to change our hearts.

I intend to encourage our "20 something" group to utilize this material and will certainly recommend it for all engaged couples as well.
