Understanding the Complex Fire Within

Event Details

Understanding the Complex Fire Within: A Theology and Spirituality of Sexuality

Sex is too often seen as setting itself against spirituality. Sex seems too earthy to be connected to spirit. Evidence suggests that more people struggle religiously with the issue of sexuality than with any area in their lives. What is sexuality? Why is it so powerful? Does it come from God or does it set us against God? Why has the church never produced a healthy, robust spirituality of sex? This retreat will attempt to articulate a healthy anthropology, theology, and spirituality of sex.
