healing from sexual and relational damage
In our modern world, we generally think that growing up means ticking off a number of sexual achievements, and the people who write the entertainments we spend our hard-earned money on are happy to feed that very childish belief. In our dysfunctional culture we practically give our young men a merit badge when they lose their virginity, telling them that they've 'become a man' with this untimely act.
In a time when the cultural language around sexuality and relationship is undergoing radical change, we prefer to go to God for a fresh word. God speaks truth in mercy, mercy that is always fresh.
His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness;
his mercies begin afresh each morning
We believe that we can hear truth best when God speaks directly to our need. We love to play escort in this journey of confession (where we name our needs--and foolish attempts to satisfy them--honestly) and repentance (where we take steps toward new ways of living). The journey takes us into the presence of a God who heals the damage we have sustained in our often confused relationship to sex.
