The Language of Intimacy
Posted: 09 June 2017
This Sunday we're starting a new series called "Hide & Seek: The Ache for Intimacy". It's a series based on the Song of Songs, which is in the Bible to teach us about love and intimacy.
But intimacy isn't always easy.
You might say life is a game of hide and seek. We seek the warmth of intimacy to escape the shadow of loneliness, yet we also hide from others, putting up walls, in fear of being seen for who we truly are.
What God gives us in the Song of Songs is a tonic to teach us how to deal with our ache for intimacy. It surprises us with its realistic descriptions of the fear, joy and pain of real relationships. It's a book for all people — married and single — because it holds out hope that God will answer our ache for intimacy.
Please join with me as I pray for our church that God might speak directly to us all through this beautiful book.
