A guide for singles struggling with their sexuality

As I was writing the previous chapter, my heart was going out to single adults who are striving to be sexually pure, as I knew I might be stirring desires they’re struggling to suppress.

I wrote the article that follows in 2005. It is a true story about an incident that occurred when I was pastoring my last church.
