02.21.16 Worship Confessional

Slide63Jesus had an uncanny ability to be close to both women and men, physically and emotionally, without violating his (or their) sexual integrity. Not only that, when the sexually broken encounter him, his very presence brings with it the offer of freedom. Marva Dawn is on cue when she says, “Jesus kept his social sexuality distinct from his genital sexuality by relating in powerfully wholesome, upbuilding, non-genital ways with persons of both sexes. And frequently his support for ‘naughty women’ set them free to ‘go and sin no more’ genitally.” (Debra Hirsch)

“What would our marriages, our friendships, our churches, and our communities look like if men and women were not afraid of connecting with each other in deep ways? What if men and women could really know each other without sex getting in the way? What if we did not have to be so afraid of our own and others’ bodies that we cannot trust ourselves with them?” (Dan Brennan)
