I hope you are all negotiating the current heat wave. I have honed my shade finding skills and am finding many reasons to use my car so I can enjoy the air conditioning.

Our study of “Changing Our Mind” by David Gushee continues tonight at 6:00 and tomorrow morning at 10:30. We will be utilizing the second session of the Study Guide, focusing on chapters 5-8.

Chapter 4 ended with author Gushee quoting psychologist David Myers who “distinguishes between  sexual orientation – the direction of enduring sexual-romantic desire and attraction, largely biological in origin: sexual identity – socially influenced self-understanding/labeling; and sexual behavior – choices and patterns in sexual identity.”

We will circle back on these distinctions as begin this week’s study, emphasizing  how our sexuality is one component of being “fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139:14.
