Sex and the Big Dance
This week we uncover the meaning of the seventh commandment, “Thou Shall Not Commit Adultery.” Some of the figures are staggering when it comes how many have had sex before marriage and how many spouses have broken this commandment. Over my years in the ministry I have come to believe that this commandment is much more complex than having (or not having) sex.
I kicked around a number of sermon titles this week. I always like the ones that “get you off the bus” and want to come and hear the sermon. So I first thought of “Forbidden Sex,” but when I told the person who sends my title into the Observer, she blushed and said, “Oh, dear.” So I figured I needed to tone it down. So then I liked the snappy and catchy one, “ Lust, Sex and Grace.” But that too seemed a bit too racy to some. I was running out of ideas and time, so finally in a cooperative spirit with Jason, Catherine, Jane and Jessica we came up with, “Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places.” Oh, in case you are wondering, a basketball is inflated, not stuffed. And here is something to chew on: I wonder how many teams would have enough players to field a team if everyone fessed up? Catherine says they wouldn’t have enough teams for a tournament! Still blogging. See you Sunday.
