Sprituality and Sexuality

Spirituality and Sexuality are amazingly similar. Spirituality is the effort to unite with God. Human sexuality is the effort to unite with another human.  Frederick Grosse

I must admit I don’t know of two more powerful and persuasive drives within myself, but oddly I have viewed them as having nothing to do with each other. Honestly, I have viewed them to be at odds with one another. One I have tried to encourage and develop within myself, and the other I have tried to ignore, suppress, and keep under control.

My guess is that neither the strict Victorians nor the sexual revolutionist have contributed to healthy sexuality… and the church has not done enough to contribute to our spiritual growth or help us integrate the two.
