Sexuality and Self

Fr. Anthony Messah of St. Timothy and St. Athanasius Church in Arlington, VA, begins our month-long look at human sexuality.

Questions include:
* What do we learn from Scripture about our sexuality?
* How do we embrace the gift of our sexuality without struggling against it as a passion?
* Why is it problematic to view sexuality as the biggest part of our personhood; as the primary thing that defines us?
* How does this emphasis on sex as our whole identity affect not only us, but also our relationship with others – including God?
* How does it affect our self-image when we post sexually-explicit images or stories of ourselves on social media?
* How does that affect our self image to be putting such an intimate piece of who we are out there for the world to see?
* How does that behavior affect our intimate relationships – both present and future?

We also speak today with Lea Povozhaev about her new book, When Russia Came to Stay. Listen to the full interview with Lea here.
