The sermon was delivered on Sunday, January 25, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.
"Religious proselytizers who rant against sex, and the sexual libertarians who claim the right to do anything at all to their own bodies, and sometimes to other people’s as well, make strange bedfellows. But both groups demonstrate in their different ways, that they believe sexuality exists as something separate from the rest of life: as a ‘thing’ to be elevated or despised. Both are reluctant to see human beings as a unity. Separating any aspect of the human being from all other aspects, aggrandizing the physical and sexual either through fear or avidity, throws a person severely out of balance.” *
As I conclude the series on Love and Sex, I will look at the unity of body, mind and spirit and how love and sex can help balance these or destroy this balance.
