Sunday, September 23, Sermon series on sex, dating, and marriage This is a very christian centered post so So the current sermon series in my church right now is on sex, dating, and marriage. So here is what a lesbian christian thought while sitting in a super packed out church listening to a relatively hetro-focused sermon. You’d be surprised, I actually enjoyed it and I think I can translate most of it to my life as well. And it’s not just tricky because christians don’t ever talk about sex in church beyond “Why wait sermons” or what I call “Idolatry of family over singlness sermons” because it’s controversial. It’s tricky at my church because the demographic is average age 26 and single, so pretty much all of us are thinking sex, dating, and marriage. He did ask if anyone in the church was called to celibacy. No one raised their hand and everyone laughed. Here’s what I loved. The pastor celebrated and praised singleness.

Buddhism flourished in Sarnath in part because of kings and wealthy merchants based in Varanasi. By the third century Sarnath had become an important center for the arts, which reached its zenith during the Gupta period 4th to 6th centuries CE.

Many of us struggle with stories about miracles. But the stories about magically multiplying fish and Jesus moon walking on the sea, surely those stories were meant to be taken metaphorically and not literally like SOME Christians believe. Founding father, Thomas Jefferson struggled with this so much he went as far at to publish his own version of the gospels. He sat down with the New Testament and removed all the miracle stories.
