Today we’re tackling the topic of sex and sexuality with Rachel Gilson. Rachel lives in the Boston metro area, working for Cru on the leadership team for theological development and culture. She has a Master of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. She’s the author of Born Again This Way: Coming Out, Coming to Faith, and What Comes Next, and her writing has been featured in Christianity Today, The Gospel Coalition, and Desiring God, among other places. 

We know the nature of today’s topic is heavy. If you have questions or you need to process after listening, please take time to send a text to a friend in your local church. We are praying the Lord will use this conversation to cause you to move towards his Word, to cry out to him in prayer, and to walk in confession with women in your local church body. 

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

  • What is God’s purpose and design for sexuality? 
  • In the midst of your sin and your failings, how does it encourage you to remember what God’s heart and posture is toward you?
  • Do you struggle to believe that Jesus is better than the sin you are drawn toward? What verses might help you to remember Christ’s worth and goodness? Consider memorizing these.
  • Is there an area that Rachel mentioned—prayer, gentleness, truth, grace, Bible study—that you want to grow in? Who could you reach out to to help you with this?
  • What might you do or implement based on what you learned in this week’s episode?
