If you care about what's happening in our culture and the Church around the issues of sexuality -- and if you want to do something about it -- and if you think that it's more important to reach out in love than to simply make statements ... then you've come to the right place.
Because we want to help you make a difference -- in your own life, in your local congregation and in your world.
Churches are facing some of the most difficult questions of our times, and the world is watching to see how they will answer. Will Christians be a winsome and convincing witness for purity in a sexually permissive society? And what will we do with the sexually
confused, broken and sinful in our midst?
For far too many churches the answer is rejection and exclusion. Harsh and condemnatory words are heard from the pulpit, church leadership projects a "holier than thou" attitude, and folk quickly get the message that their particular sins are outside the realm of God's grace.
Or churches settle for silence and denial.
That doesn't affect us here, whatever that might be. Sexual addiction ... pornography ... homosexuality ... infidelity ... promiscuity. Maybe if we don't talk about it, it will just go away.
Given those choices, is it any wonder that many kind-hearted people opt for uncritical acceptance? At least there's a smidgen of compassion in that response.
