In the name of relevance

YBOR CITY, Fla. – A southwest Florida church issued a challenge for its married members this past Sunday: Hanky-panky every day. Relevant Church head pastor Paul Wirth says the 50 percent divorce rate was the catalyst for The 30-Day Sex Challenge. “And that’s no different for people who attend church,” Wirth said. “Sometimes life gets in the way. Our jobs get in the way.” Oh, and the flip side of the challenge? No rolling in the sheets for the unwed. “It’s going to be tempting and awkward at the same time for sure,” said parishioner Brent Cayson. Single men and women can’t have sex for 30 days, and married couples are urged to have it every day. “If you look at studies, studies say in 30 days you can develop a habit,” said Pastor Paul Wirth. It definitely caught wives in the church by surprise. “Our married people are far more fearful than our single people,” said Wirth. Church member Tim Jones and his fiancée agreed to take on the challenge, though he acknowledges it’ll be a tough month. But he added: “I think it’s worth trying to find out other things about each other.”

It’ll be a tough month?!?! How will we ever stay true under the pressure of the end of the age if 30 days of moral purity is so much to ask. Nothing like setting the bar low, church. What happens at the end of the 30 days… a church-wide party, perhaps rent a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn Express… what are your ideas???
