As a devoted follower of Jesus, husband, father, friend, and author of the groundbreaking book, Sacred Unions, Sacred Passions, I rejoice to see a growing number of Christian men and women rethinking sexuality, friendship, and deep trust between men and women in the 21st century.
Yet, as one who has published the first evangelical full length book on the subject, I struggle with my role as a conversation-starter, a leader, a paradigm-changer within this deepening and growing conversation. The momentum for this contiunues to build.
I struggle not out of issues of personal integrity. For me, the struggle is in a different sense.
How do we, as followers of Jesus, shift from something viewed as taboo between men and women to deep trust? What is my role in helping and participating in that shift? Is taking steps toward encouraging men and women toward deep trust worth the risk?
