Sex Challenge

I’m sure most of you have heard of Ed Young’s (of Fellowship Church here in Dallas) 7-day sex challenge. My friend, Pace (worship pastor at Fellowship), blogged about it recently. I thought I’d bring it up because I never mentioned it here on my blog.Â

I watched the following interview on CNN and personally, was very happy to see Christians and the Church painted in a positive light. I loved the demeanor of the woman who interviewed Ed and Lisa Young. She seemed genuinely interested, sweet and read some encouraging emails. Here’s the interview:




I’ve already showed my cards. You can tell what I think. We (the Church) often get painted in such a horrible way through TV, media and movies – so I’m refreshed to see this buzz. BUT… I want to hear from you. What are your thoughts on this?Â


My friend, Pace, at Fellowship Church posted this video that they did recently. I love it! Art is about expression. How are you expressing yourself as an artist? Does your church let you express yourself? Do you feel like your church stiffles or depresses creativity, freedom and expression in your situation? Express yourself!

Speaking of expression: I’ve got a lot of thoughts and comments that I’m processing through right now. I’m pretty fired up. I’m greatly encouraged by the many of you that responded to yesterday’s blog post. I’m also greatly concerned by some people’s reaction. Bear with me. I’m trying to handle it Christ-like.


What inspires you? Different things inspire me – I look for inspiration from other churches, American Idol, The Grammys, concerts, conferences, things like Blue Man Group and KA in Vegas, etc. My friend, Pace, from Fellowship Church sent me THIS link to something they did this past Christmas. I was inspired. I was encouraged and I was proud that The Church is using it’s gifts and creativity again. Check it out!

Each Friday I check out the “Video of the Week” from my friend, Bill Seaver’s blog: MicroExplosion. This week’s video was on giving a presentation. I thought it was great and would love for all preachers/presenters to watch it.
