Being human means we were originally created with the capacity for intimacy. This is a gift meant to be enjoyed with God and with others. Our brokenness and sin has drastically impacted human relationships, not just our relationship with God. On this Sunday we want to address how our salvation is meant to be an entrance into relationship with God through Jesus. This renewed relationship then can open up a path for healing our relationships with others.
Sexuality is perhaps the most devastated part of our humanity, and many Christians do not even recognize that our sexuality is part of our essence as a human being. Because we are integrated beings body, mind and spirit - our sexuality is physical, emotional and spiritual. All aspects of intimacy (emotional, spiritual, sexual) will be addressed in this teaching on relationship that is both vertical (with God) and horizontal (with others).
