An Emergent Manifesto of Hope

An Emergent Manifesto of Hope It was an honor to write for An Emergent Manifesto of Hope, particularly on such a sensitive, unspoken, but nonetheless critical topic as sexual integrity. As we dream and hope about what the church may become, one piece of that is an honest conversation about what makes for healthy sexuality. The chapter I wrote, “Emergent Kissing: Authenticity and Integrity in Sexuality,” hopes to contribute to that conversation. It discusses what sexual integrity can look like for married couples, and for individuals who are single (either for a temporary season or as part of a long term commitment). A key part of this is acknowledging the need for affection and physical touch that we all have, artfully expressed here (lyrics).

As part of this project, I also wrote three posts for their blog:

“Potty Papers” and Daddy

Museum as Church– Church as Museum

Flossing: A Parable (that is also a true story)
