musings about the emerging church, mission and contemporary culture...

God is at large, intimately involved in his world in ways that the church is maybe just waking up to!

'This' is a very thoughtful contribution to the discussions and debates surrounding human sexuality from a good friend of mine, Paul Chambers. We would all, regardless of our position on this or any other issue where we attempt to apply 'Biblical Truth' to someone else's life, do well to reflect on Paul's comments...

"... before you reach for the Christian platitudes, let’s dare to sift our own souls. Is there much there that is unhealed, unspoken, unforgiven? Faith in Jesus does not exempt us from traversing the deeper chasms of the psyche. Nor does it automatically protect us from the little deaths which rehearse us for the grand one. There can be no easy conclusion to this debate – I suspect that if we don’t weep as well as laugh, there will have been a failure somewhere."
