'One weakness in common approaches to discipleship is that we treat different areas of life as separate compartments - like discrete software packages to be downloaded. We are tempted to deal with sexuality and relationships through specialist courses or seasonal sermons. Yet the Christian vision of sexuality will only seep into people's imaginations if it is constantly connected to our worship and faith. Our sexuality is an essential part of our spirituality, and it should be an integral theme in our regular teaching and worship. Teachers need to keep the Christian vision of sexuality before people - to continually re-envision them - much as a hot element keeps a pot on a roiling boil. To give the Christian vision power in people's lives, they need to regularly describe, communicate, and affirm the nature of the Christian life and to connect this vision with every aspect of life.'
