    I went out to the site and checked it out and it seems like a solid idea to me. It comes along with an emotional needs questionaire that couples can work through together and also questions for each day of the challenge that if done will allow you to learn more about your spouse and vice versa. It prompts conversation so there’s an extra bonus.

    So after 30-days of abstinence do the singles get to have sex again? Where was this church when I was single? All that guilt for nothing. :-). Seriously, It seems like a great idea, but I’m gonna need a maid, a nanny, and a twin to go to work for me, because a sista is tired. I like the questionnaire part, that’s something me and the husband can do when we’re too pooped to do anything else.

    Kim, I thought about that too but the Pastor said that studies show if you do something for 30 days it becomes a habit, so… I think he’s hoping after seeing that they can do it for that long they just keep it up.

    On the other hand for the married couples after 30 days the same thing could happen 🙂

    I think this challenge is a bit odd. To me it sends out the thought that lots, habitual, or continuous sex is what can keep a marriage together. I just can’t see the logic in this. Sexual encounters between married couples should be more than habitual. I think this pastor should dig deeper in the spiritual connection you should have before jumping in the sack just for the sake of keeping two people together.

    As far as it being out of line for a church to do this..I think not. It is nice to see religous venues take heed to reality…without sex we couldn’t be here to give praise for the Most High…LOL. great post!

    By the way, while doing something for 30 days may be habit forming, it can also become quite boring…imagine eating tuna everyday for 30 days for dinner, lunch, and breakfast. LOL

    I’m willing to try it. I’ve always felt married couples had a responsibility to schedule us time and work other things around that, versus working on everything and trying to fit in us time.

    As the pastor’s wife, I want to encourage everyone to listen to the podcast. It casts a lot of light on the series. some of what the media spins isn’t correct. It is really more about being intimate every day for 30 days and making that a priority and educating ourselves as to what our emotional needs are so that we can love each other unconditionally and sacrificially like Jesus did.
    Blessings!

    ericka: it does have material for you to follow through during the challenge beside sex and tha tlast line was funny.

    nappy pappy: sometimes it is hard if you don’t make the time, after work and kids and activities someone will always crash for the night so you have to really make the effort to make the time. I agree with you.

    SusieQ: Thank you so much for checking out our blog and for weighing in on the topic. I wish you and your church much success with the challenge.

    I am excited that the “Pastor” of this church is attempting to “resurrect” some marital intimacy. It is needed. Certainly, marital intimacy is one of my hot topics but it is more of a spiritual thing than a physical thing.

    I hope the Pastor of Relevant Church is prepared to truly minister to the couples when they come forth with their concerns and the deeper issues start to surface. .. J. T. Wright

Do You Care if He Cheats?

The New York Times is running an article today that  alleges that John McCain had a  romantic relationship with a female lobbyist during his first run for the White House eight years ago.

A female lobbyist had been turning up with him at fund-raisers, visiting his offices and accompanying him on a client’s corporate jet. Convinced the relationship had become romantic, some of his top advisers intervened to protect the candidate from himself “” instructing staff members to block the woman’s access, privately warning her away and repeatedly confronting him, several people involved in the campaign said on the condition of anonymity.

John McCain has already denied the allegations.   However in the past, McCain  has also admitted to having an affair with his current wife, Cindy, while  he was still married to his first wife, Carol.

Do you care if a politician has an extramarital affair?   Do you think these unethical practices will spill over into how he is running the country? How did you respond when Clinton was caught cheating?   (I know that some people liked him so much that they were willing to overlook Clinton’s indiscretions.)
