Quite a few people have mentioned that they’ve been coming to church for decades and they’ve never before heard a talk series on sex and the Song of Songs. This has meant we’ve had lots to think about and talk about as we’ve met for dinner or coffee after church. We’d love you to come along and be a part of this challenging discussion by joining us for the talk ‘True Sex is Secure’.
In particular, we’re going to be addressing some of the things that happen when the secure bonds of sex are broken. We’ll be looking at issues of rejection and abuse in relationships, and this will lead us to explore just where God is in the midst of these kinds of horrible things in life.
As part of our regular church services, we also have a question and answer time, and these are the questions I’ll be answering that you asked last weekend:
- Is it wise and helpful for Christians to visit mosques to show support after the Christchurch massacre?
- In the Song of Songs, the woman’s virginity was attractive to the man, but what about the man’s virginity?
- What advice should we give to a Christian man whose wife withholds sex from him?
- What does ‘abundant’ praise mean in the context of Song of Songs?
- What was your most romantic gesture to Mandy?
- If we sing old words in church then won’t visitors think that God is out of date?
- Shouldn’t Christians avoid non-spiritual Yoga classes because its origin is in Hinduism?
So, come along and join us either at 5pm Saturday (with kids and youth programs, and dinner for all straight after church), or 9am Sunday (with espresso over morning tea). Nearly every week we welcome someone new to our church, so if you just want to pop in and check us out then you’ll be very welcome.
Grace and peace, Jodie.
