Love is a Verb

Why invest in relationships? In a fast-paced, instant-gratification world, why don’t we just treat them like everything else: disposable commodities to be chopped, changed, worn-out and replaced at will? Deep down, we all long for something more meaningful; more life-giving. This series looks at what it takes to build and sustain great relationships with friends, family, colleagues and loved ones. Love is not an abstract feeling; a vague and sentimental notion. Love takes time, work and effort. Love is a verb.

Love is a Verb: Broken Sex - Psalm 51

Sex is a good and powerful gift from God. But when misused it can leave us disappointed and hurt. What does Jesus offer to those carrying pain, regret and shame? How can we experience restoration from hurt inflicted upon us? And how can the church be a community that supports the hurting, and helps them to find hope in God?
