A couple of years ago, a pastor in Florida issued a challenge for his parishioners : Have sex for 30 days or nights in a row and see what it does to your marriage. The idea is not just physical. According to Wirth who has taken the challenge himself , it's actually a way to increase the intimacy, to pay attention to one another again, and to start meeting each other's needs. Wirth, who has since written a book -- 30daysexchallenge: A Journey to Intimacy -- says that 20 million married Americans have sex fewer than 10 times a year.
Many churchgoers are in the liturgical season of Lent, a corporate time of fasting, self-denial and prayer, leading up to the events of Holy Week. But the married members of Relevant Church in Tampa, Florida, are planning on hav ing lots of sex right up to Palm Sunday. Relevant Church leaders brainstormed ways to help couples deal with their top concerns: sex and money. Pastor Wirth told media that the challenge is aimed at revolutionizing intimacy in marriages, and revolutionizing thinking among singles about what really makes relationships work. The buzz about this in Tampa is growing.
T here was no excuse for saying no: the pastor ordered his parishioners to have sex. Lots of sex. When the staff at Relevant Church in Tampa, Florida, wanted to conduct a sermon series on relationships, they chose to focus on sex. The Day Sex Challenge dared married couples to hop between the sheets—and non-marrieds to abstain—every day for a month.
