A better way to approach sexual brokenness in our churches - Daniel Weiss - Episode 138
Although church is a place for imperfect people to go to become better, sometimes we find it hard to be accepted there through our own trials and imperfections, especially in the case of sexual brokenness. Today Daniel Weiss joins us to discuss how clergy and members of congregations can better approach this struggle and come together to help foster healing and acceptance. In this episode we cover:
- What do you see as God's design for healthy sexuality?
- How is this being distorted culturally?
- What do you mean when you say we're all sexually broken?
- How do you see us responding to this in unhealthy ways?
- What are the healthiest ways to respond to our own and other's sexual brokenness?
- How can we talk about sexual brokenness without inducing unhealthy levels of shame?
- How are you helping clergy teach and minister around these sensitive topics?
