Dallas-area pastor’s call to action: 7 straight days of sex for married couples
November 12, 2008 DALLAS The pastor of a mega-church says he will challenge married congregants during his sermon Sunday to have sex for seven straight days – and he plans to practice what he preaches. “We’re going to give it a try,” said the Rev. Ed Young, who has four children with his wife of 26 years. Young, 47, said he believes society promotes promiscuity and he wants to reclaim sex for married couples. Sex should be a nurturing, spiritual act that strengthens marriages, he said. “God says sex should be between a married man and a woman,” Young said. “I think it’s one of the greatest things you can do for your kids because so goes the marriage, so goes the family.” Young said he will deliver his seven-day sex challenge while sitting on a bed in front of his Dallas-area church campus. He is founder of the nondenominational Fellowship Church, which draws about 20,000 people each Sunday and also has campuses in Fort Worth, Plano and Miami. Earlier this year, a southwest Florida pastor, perhaps having more faith in his congregants’ stamina, issued a 30-day sex challenge. — Information from: The Dallas Morning News: http://www.dallasnews.com Fort Worth Star-Telegram: http://www.star-telegram.com

hmmm…this is INTERESTING…i’m sure my hubby would think so also!
Here’s a bit of a private admission. I’m all for it. I don’t think I can convince the 2nd party to go with the challenge though.
Sounds like a fun challenge though! Now that – THAT – I can do. Pray about something every day (with my bird brain) – maybe not. Talk to someone about god – maybe not.
Sex every day? Really? Bring on that one!!! Do we have to bring back a report card?
this was hilarious to me! good for them! 🙂
MY HUSBAND came home the other day and said he heard this on the radio – but I started my period the same day ha ha ha!!!!!
what fun. 😉
i just sent a link to the article to Hubby. Wanna guess what his take will be?
Sounds like fun! hehe Can we start early?? 😉
Darn. My hubby is deployed.
I think it is funny that that task seems so….so daunting to me 😉 every day really? like…EVERY day???
this is my church! Seriously. The sermon was awesome, even Lisa Young spoke and the whole thing was eye opening. Heck yeah, we’ll take the challenge! This is a really bad week at work for my hubby so hopefully this cheers him up. LOL
oh and the sermon concludes next week. And they want everyone to keep a journal and email in notes! LOL not about the “details” but about how it affects our marriages.
I can’t help but wonder if the church will notice a sudden increase in babies in their nursery 9 mths from now… 🙂
What a challenge=) We are trying to get pregnant, what’s 7 more days, huh!!!
“Earlier this year, a southwest Florida pastor, perhaps having more faith in his congregants’ stamina, issued a 30-day sex challenge.” LOL!!! More faith in their stamina! INDEED! Hee hee hee!
