Living with Sexual Integrity: Science, the world and the word of God (marriage and singleness)
Christians of all ages and all relational states, married and single need to live a life of sexual integrity and demonstrate it to a fallen world.
A life of sexual integrity for a Christian requires a Bible based rather than world-based sense of identity, including sexual identity. Building on this is an understanding of Gods plan for a redeemed model of sex and sexuality, and the ability to understand and critique unhealthy world views on sex.
In this presentation Patricia Weerakoon, a Christian sexologist and author will explore the neurochemistry and biology of desire love and bonding and provide a Biblical framework for healthy sexuality that could be used to critique current cultural and social mores.
Couples event: Marrieds, Engaged ‘Good Sex and Godly marriage’
Christians claim to know God and follow his guidelines for life. How do we understand and interpret this in our marriages in a seductive culture that encourages individualistic narcissism and selfish careerism? And what part does sex and intimacy play in a Christian marriage? Is it essential? Necessary? Or just nice? This workshop/seminar explores the science and worldview of sexual desire, romantic love and long-term attachment; and explores the role of sex in marriage through the lens of a Christ focussed biblical worldview. We will explore, from a biblical perspective, the male and female sexual response cycles and discuss the meaning and interpretation of intimacy and sex in marriage and the activities that may or may not be acceptable in a couple relationship. As well as common concerns and dysfunctions. There will be time for a couples’ communications exercise and a question and answer session.
Patricia trained in Medicine in Sri Lanka. She attributes her twin passions of God and sex to her postgraduate training in sexology at the university of Hawaii. She retired in 2012 after a career as director of an internationally renowned graduate program in sexual health at the University of Sydney to pursue her passion for writing and public speaking in sexology from a Christ focussed biblical perspective. Her non-fiction books are a gold-standard guides for good sexual health for all ages. She has a recognised media presence and is a popular public speaker and social commentator in Australia.
