Staff Christmas dinner was yesterday evening—very fun. Linn served up an amazing feast and the conversation was good and entertaining. We talked about so many topics, but one thing that bears mentioning is how wonderfully freeing it is to hear other Christians talk about sexuality in a way that's both frank and appropriate. All too often we can get mired in uncomfortable silences, toss empty platitudes in one another's general direction, or try to reimagine God's design and command based on our own desires and sensibilities. All of those approaches lack the dignity that rightly belongs to God's creation among His children.
