This series has become a staple for us, and rightly so. Sex and money is our annual attempt to talk about the issues that challenge and puzzle us most. And we won’t be done anytime soon.
We realize that while the Bible has plenty to say on these topics, easy moralism doesn’t work. What we need is a greater depth of insight, to see sex and money as gifts of God, but also as renegade powers; as things that bless our lives, but also as things that can bring us pain and loss when we fail to understand them well. We need reasons, not just rules.
This series is about practical discipleship. And although we won’t necessarily seek controversy, swimming against the cultural stream just might make that happen.
As we talk candidly about sex and money, we will see once again how grounded and practical Christian faith is.
