Wired PR News.com – In an unconventional style of sermon, a Grapevine pastor plans to tell his congregation that he wants the married members to have sex everyday for a week with their spouses. As reported by the Dallas Morning News, Reverend Ed Young plans to issue his call to action on Sunday, the day of which he wishes for them to get started.
Reverend Young’s “sex challenge” is said to be representative of the need for married couples to reaffirm their spiritual commitment to one another amidst having to deal with additional stresses brought on by present times. Some have asserted that the pastor’s antics are a means of drawing in larger crowds. However, the pastor says “We’ve got more people than we can say grace over.” He further insists that the reasons are more in line with helping preserve the sanctity of marriage, citing “It gets people thinking on a deeper level about sex. I want people talking about.”
The news article mentions that another church issued a similar challenge earlier in the year. Young, who plans to adhere to the rules of the challenge himself, pastors Fellowship Church in Grapevine, TX.
