My Pastor Totally Rocks

April 28, 2014

in the generous life

Yesterday my pastor talked about … sex.

He works through a book of the Bible, verse by verse, sharing and teaching as he goes. This week we landed on a few scriptures about sexuality and he taught a very biblically sound, sex-positive message. It was healthy and encouraging. He totally rocks.

Not everyone gets to teach from a pulpit each Sunday (or from a music stand, his usual choice), but each of us have a sphere of influence (a group of people we rub elbows with and share what we believe, by word or deed).

Is your life “preaching” a sex-positive message? What would that look like to your kids, your friends, your co-workers, your neighbors, etc.? How can we share a sex-positive message with those around us?

The evidence is clear; if you want the best sex, if you want the most frequent sex, choose sex in a committed marriage.  Paul Byerly

Loved that your pastor taught from the pulpit on sex. The men in our church are about to start a study on a book call “Sexual Sanity for Men”. I feel that we women need to be covering the same topic at the same time but I am not sure what would be a good book for us. We hope to include all of our women, married and single, perhaps in separate groups when necessary. Can you recommend a book? Maybe one that would address female sexuality as well as understand how men tick.

Thanks,
Sarah

You might try something like Passion Pursuit by Dillow & Slattery (aff link http://amzn.to/14bPLOb) or The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex by Sheila Wray Gregoire (aff link http://amzn.to/14bPLOb).

Does anyone else have a book they can recommend?

Our pastor also taught about sex a few weeks ago. I just recently started going to this church in January. He was so open about it and it was definitely sex-positive–it was refreshing!

Hopefully our pastors are starting a trend. :)

I am doing a happy dance about this one! Good for your pastor. I really believe there’s a way to do this responsibly and boldly and biblically. It’s good to see ministers willing to speak up for what’s right there in the Word of God, including sex.

Any chance your pastor streams his messages anywhere??
