Authentic Intimacy - State College, PA Conference
Single or Married, 18 to 80, women from all over the midwest were invited to join Dr. Juli Slattery to learn about God's design for sexuality in State College, PA on September 24, 2016. These are the sessions that were
Session 1: Why Does Your Sexuality Matter? We will start with the basics of sexuality. Why is sex important to marriage, why is it important to God, why is it important to the enemy, and why should it be important to you? We show the tie between the sexual and the spiritual, breaking down the basics taught in Ephesians 5.
Session 2: What Does Holy Sexuality Look Like? What is God's design for sexuality? We will talk about temptation, learning to play defense and offense in sexuality, fighting as a team, and studying the Truth in the Song of Solomon.
Session 3: Open for Questions. Throughout the day, we will have a number women can anonymously text in their questions to. While we are teaching God's design for sexuality, we also want women to have a time to ask very practical and everyday application questions. During this session, we hear of great pain, confusion, and abuse, but also from singles and married women who just want to openly and honestly discuss sex! Juli & Linda answer these questions, not with what they believe, but what scripture says. We want to be Biblical and bold!
Session 4: Restoring Intimacy with God. Do you believe that Jesus wants intimacy with you? We share about worship, the language of intimacy with God, and having a truly intimate relationship with our creator. This is why we write and teach on sexuality, it all comes back to oneness with Christ.
