Kuhn and Grimmond explore secular community, how this is seeping into church community. Kyhn explores what a community is, and that Christian community is unique because it is bound by Christ. Grimmond argues that you cannot have Christ without community, because we are all part of the body. He explores what this means in practise, especially appreciating the others in church. Some discussion of having a mixed group rather than specific demographics.


Kuhn introduces the topic and speakers. Treweek introduces the challenges in addressing the topic, and the importance of having God's perspective as the most important perspective. Treweek explores whether living without sex is truly living, exploring the history between society and sex, including both the industrial and sexual revolutions. She shows from the Bible that heaven will not have sex, and thus that we should not be ultimate. Thomson explores if life without sex is realistic. He stresses the importance of walking by the Spirit, and he will give you the strength to overcome sexual sin. Thompson addresses questions raised by 1 Corinthians 7. Talk is followed by questions., Recorded during Victoria's lockdown before the single's bubble.

Kuhn looks at 3 ways that we negate joy in community : 1. We fail to confess sin, including the importance of both corporate and private confession. 2. We envy one another 3. We focus on capatability rather than community in our gatherings
