Men's Bible Study
September 11th - September 18th, 2018
ALSO OFFERING-RETHINKING SEXUALITY
(Open to Men, Women, Married & Single)
Can Christians reclaim sexuality in a broken culture?
Disheartening conversations about sexuality are all around us. Sexual abuse. Sex addictions. Gender confusion. Brokenness. Shame. But what if all this pain presented an invitation: an opportunity to pursue the heart of God and become Jesus' disciples?
In this study, Dr. Juli Slattery, renowned expert on sexuality and biblical truth, equips you to:
• Understand how every sexual question is ultimately a spiritual one
• View sexuality not as a problem to solve but as a territory to reclaim
• See how sexuality is rooted in the broader context of God's heart for us
• Grasp the bigger picture of sexual challenges and wholeness
• Shift the challenge from combating sexual problems to proclaiming and modeling sacred sexuality
Instead of arguing with the world about what's right and wrong about sexual choices, discover a broader and more effective approach in this practical and groundbreaking resource. As you encounter the pain of sexual brokenness- your own or someone else's- you'll ultimately collide with and point others to the love and grace of Jesus.
