Sex and the City
If there are two images that have been joined in the modern human imagination, it is, perhaps, these two: Sex and the City. But, having heard from the silver screen, we should ask: what does the inspired word of God have to say about romantic love? In Song of Songs 5:2-8 we encounter an urban love poem about the intoxicating power of erotic love. Once awakened, erotic and romantic desire needs the protection of the covenant community. In a world of romantic disappointment, frustration and even violence, our challenge is to continue to build the covenant community and the sisterhood of the daughters of Jerusalem. **Please note: Due to technical difficulties, the last 5 minutes of this sermon are not recorded.
