How I ever got into speaking any sense about relationships I may never know (nor will my wife!) – but it seems that my “DateTalk” messages are scratching the itch wherever I get the privilege to share them around the world. This weekend was no exception and we had a real “thrilla in Manila” DateTalk weekend before flying back to London…
Friday night was a one off “DateNite” session (check out some photo’s here) with over 800 young people crammed into a 600 seater venue as we did some straight-talking about realationship and sex and everthing inbetween. Two weeks prior to that we had had a 2 repeat sessions on “Understanding the opposite sex” in the same venue with a similar crowd getting the point that “to be a lover, you need to be a learner…”
Saturday was the mega “DateTalk Day” with over 500 registering and having a rave day as I did my best sharing on:
- “I’ll have a whole one please” (The best preparation you can make for fulfilled future relationship is a commitment to personal wholeness or “one-ness”)
- “Lessons from Lovers Lane” (How NOT to do it)
- “Doing it the HighWay” (The better way…)
- “SexTalk” (Straight talk about the myths, the manual, and the mystery…)
I have now done this DateTalk Day in Innsbruck Austria, Dallas & Jacksonville USA, London, and its been used in Africa, in Ireland, and even some by our team in China, and the thing that amazes me is just how refreshing and relevant these messages continue to be, and the freedom and renewing they bring to single people in churches of so many different cultures. We have the series available to purchase on DVD if anyone is interested – contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for this great resource which you can use effectively as a series in small groups or for personal input.
anyway, its always a privilege and blessing to share this stuff, especially since I was about the most useless boyfriend anyone ever had…Gods grace IS amazing!
