God's Design for Sexuality in a Changing Culture
Everyone outside the church is talking about sexual issues gender identity, same-sex attraction, same-sex marriage the world s perspective on these issues has certainly changed over the last decade. So how do you answer questions about God s design for sexuality for church members and their families? Is your church equipping your people to understand a biblical perspective on sexuality and form a gospel-based response to questions from both inside and outside the church?
Harvest USA, an organization that has been thinking biblically and redemptively about these issues for decades, has now made available a video series that will help you wisely, kindly, and truthfully help your church to understand God s biblical design for sexuality and give direction on how to speak the truth in love to the world around us.
The seminar consists of fifteen 30-minute videos (suitable for use during Sunday school or in small group), downloadable leader guide, and participant outlines that address questions and topics about God s design for sexuality including the following:
Why do we need to talk about sex?
Why do we struggle with our sexuality?
Is God s design for sexuality still relevant today?
What does the Bible really say about homosexuality?
Can you change if you are gay?
How can a single person live out God s design for their sexuality?
Understanding gender and transgender issues
How to help the sexual struggler
Key steps for raising sexually healthy kids
Keeping your kids safe in an Internet world
My thoughts: I think that this is a wonderful resource for the church to have, since I know that things have changed so much since I was a kid, and that Christians have struggled to keep up with the material for young people. That said, I also realize that a lot of these subjects are ones they should be taught at home and then re-enforced at church. That said, I love that this DVD covers a wide variety of topics that are geared towards high schoolers, but are engaging for any age. I love the book, Alive, that accompanies it, since it is filled with discussion questions and scenarios to help think through each topic. This is a wonderful resource for churches and youth groups.
I received this product from the publisher. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
