The Naked Truth (cut this out and use it to invite a friend)



What did Jesus teach about human sexuality? How did he treat people who were confused or conflicted, even compromised by it? Our culture is the most sexualized it has ever been, but we’re certainly not at peace in love. Perhaps it’s time to revisit The Naked Truth as seen through the eyes and heart of Jesus. Oneness (Matthew 19:1-12) Brokenness (Matthew 5:27-32) Rescue (John 8:1-11) Redemption (John 4:1-42)





If you’d like to listen to today’s message again or share it with someone... Online: Podcast: Available on CD: purchase at the Host Station. Complete teaching series are also available on CD. 


Our food pantry is open Mondays 9a-Noon for our community. We are also an “Access” site to facilitate applications to critical programs that may need help beyond food. More info at

The ancient history of February’s a strange mashup of cultural world views. The name comes from the Latin Februa (strips of goat skin) used in a Roman festival of pagan purification held on the 15th. Cupid, the god of desire whose job it is to shoot people through the heart with an arrow, is son of fertility gods, Venus (goddess of sexual love and beauty) and Mars (god of war). Sort of makes sense.



Liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter and Instagram gives you access to information and resources you may not find anywhere else. Plus it’s a great way to invite friends to Christ Journey events.

How’d Valentine wind up with a day? One story says around 270 A.D Claudius II, trying to bolster his army, forbade young men to marry. Valentine, a Christian priest, flouted the ban, performing secret weddings. He was beheaded on February 14, leaving a farewell note to the jailer’s daughter and signing it , “From Your Valentine”.


Mix in a day honoring Presidents and remake the Celtic time of weather prediction into Groundhog Day, and you’re thoroughly mashed.


All that to say the culture wars raging today around sex, marriage, paganism, Christianity, politics and desire make this a good time for our new series “The Naked Truth”. Please pray for me as I prepare to help us consider Jesus’ teaching about human sexuality.

I Like Girls: Honor The New Guy Code, is a book recently published by our very own, Che Scott, Groups Director. You’re invited to his book signing at Books & Books on February 5 at 6:30p. Hope you can join us!
