Take 10 minutes and watch this. It’s not perfect, but it’s a good, practical cogitator. This production from the Austin Institute provides a unique and thoughtful illustration of the sickly situation of sexual relationships in the young adult culture (and beyond) and how it can be improved. Because this video is a secular production, it is – from the perspective of this blog – incomplete on certain factors and a bit overly ‘worldly’ in certain characterizations. Nonetheless, it’s an intriguing portrayal of the dynamics of sexual relationships and the hopelessness of the current trajectory of the dating culture.
Food for thought:
- How is the walk of a disciple different from the general cultural portrait sketched here?
- Taking some time to think honestly, how can you act differently to heal the diseased relationship culture we live in?
- Considering how unnatural and fractured the relationship culture is, where does our hope lie?
