It seems as if God is focusing His attention this year on addressing the big elephant in the room in many churches, namely po*rnography.
center>On Superbowl Sunday (February 6, 2011), our pastor at Soul Purpose Church kicked off a 4-week teaching series encouraging sexual purity with a video from this organization (http://xxxchurch.com). Our church joined thousands of others in this nationwide campaign.
Then the topic of the annual men’s retreat at Shenandoah Springs Camp on May 20-21 was Every Man’s Battle – Winning the War on Sexual Temptation.
In my Sunday Inspiration on May 22, I was prompted to include a link to videos for Every Man’s Battle [http://www.everymansbattle.com/blogs/videos/]. In response to that message, my good friend Judi Reid wrote this regarding:
Please remember Somebody’s Daughter as a resource. It is one of the most powerful ones ever created. At this site, are many endorsements. And Steve Siler has an incredible portfolio of how this resource (CD, DVD, + Discussion Guide) has been used all over the country to touch families. This one is especially effective to let men know how po*rnography effects the women/wives in their lives. Each woman is a daughter of the King-Somebody’s Daughter in heaven and on earth. Pastors share their struggles, a husband and wife become vulnerable with their testimony and there is a section for young men.
Also at this site are resources for almost any topic that is “tough” to address: eating disorders, abortion recovery, special needs, sex trafficking, child abuse, cancer…
Whatever you can do to impact lives and give them hope through these God-gifted creations would bless so many whom you serve as connector in the Kingdom.
Blessings to lay hold of what God is doing and to let others know!
We’d love to hear your thoughts on this matter (comment below) – Somebody’s Daughter
