Where True Love Is devotionals
Sex With God: Meditations on the sacred nature of sex in a post-purity-culture world
Involving God in your sex life may sound scandalous, but sexuality was designed by our creator and is saturated with the very being of God. So why not invite the divine in? The concept may feel awkward at first, because we’ve been trained by purity culture and centuries of mistrust of our bodies and our desires. But God wants to be part of all we do. God is already there when you are naked with your beloved. God is within you, and within them, and between you both. Be brave. Enter into that presence. You have the power to transform sex into worship of God, with God.
A Theology of Desire: Meditations on intimacy, consummation, and the longing of God
Desire and longing are part of the human condition. But we aren’t alone in our thirst: the essence of divinity is an intense yearning for unity. The meditations contained in these pages will not only change your view of God, they will help you experience God.
