Well, ok, one of many. :)
Fr. David was telling me about a conversation he had with another priest about our church’s choice to use the Episcopal youth curriculum “Journey to Adulthood”.
Fr. D: “We’ll be using J2A, but leaving out all the parts on sexuality.”
Other priest: “Oh, why?”
Fr. D: “Because it doesn’t teach chastity.”
Other priest: “Really? I was sure chastity was one of the options!”
It is amazing to me how someone can so wholly miss the point. Chastity as “one of the options”?!?!?!?! We claim to be Christ’s church; we say we are called to holiness for crying out loud…but I guess it is just too much to expect our teens to even consider chastity as more than “one of the options” available to them.
