The Simplicity and Complexity of Sex

Posted: January 29, 2019 in Uncategorized

Nadia Bolz-Weber has written what I think is one of the most eloquent descriptions of the variegated nature of sex I’ve ever read:

“Sex can be procreative, a way of creating new life. It can be intimate, a way for love to be expressed between partners. It can be revelatory, a way in which we discover ourselves and another. It can be boring, mind-blowing, or regrettable. It can be a beautiful aspect of human flourishing, and it can be a humiliating aspect of human degradation. It can be the safest place we can go or the most dangerous thing we can do. It can be obligation or joy. It can be deadly. It can be life.” (The Christian Century, Feb 2019)
