ummm...

I'm SORRY if this is extremely immature or possibly quite sacrilegious. However, I am the youngest one of the group so that gives me a little leeway right?

Is there SOMETHING about this that just seems a little...oh I don't know...awkward to you?

Mare, first of all, Ryan is the youngest.

Second of all, the Church is the Bride of Christ. Human intercourse is merely a symbol, not the other way around.

In case you people aren't sure, I am not kidding, which you may find even more frightening.

Mare said...

Helen....

shoot...well there went my age cop-out. I am suddenly embarrassed.

Merely a symbol...I'm going to have to think on that one! Definitely haven't thought of it like that before...

NtG said...

Ok how old is mare? This is very important to me. Ryan B is younger than me. I just need to know who else is. I'm. 30 if anyone is counting.

Also you all need to get your minds out of the gutter. Seriously. ( | )

I am sitting at starbucks laughing my @SS off. So thanks for that!

Mare said...

NtG...I'm a mere 23. Just a baby and totally appopriate age for such "gutter" humor...right?

Right?!?!

Or maybe I've just learned it from katdish.

Helen said...

Mare, it isn't gutter humour at all, but an opportunity to discuss the theological implications of phrases which make us uncomfortable when used in conjunction with the triune God.

What Katdish said.

katdish said...

Okay whatever. Still laughing my butt off. So I guess I am incredibly immature.

Mare said...

helen, great point. I feel much better about that since I am an aspiring theologian... ;) phew. thanks for the save.

I'm going to get off the computer for the night so I expect to return to a proper theological resolution when I return to my computer in the morning. Something very deep and life changing please and thank you.

night friends.

Uh. Yeah.

I'm not commenting on this one, after ending up in the time out corner for my last comment.

Helen said...

Sharkie, at least you've got company.... ;-)

KatieHen said...

awkward. definitely awkward.

My 29 year old self says...
Good points, Helen! Sometimes the Bride of Christ talk freaks me out because of what we have made sex to represent in our lovely messed up culture.

My 14 year old self says...
huh huh...it says 'intercourse'...huh huh (a la Beavis and Butthead)

Usually the 14 year old self wins. This morning Handy Manny said something like, "You're my favorite tool!" and I was a goner.

Helen said...

I think marriage is meant to demonstrate how God wants our relationship with Him to be. All aspects of intimacy...Knowing what we'll say before we say it....Bringing home a favorite treat just to make the other happy....Stuff like that.

Wendy said...

Okay Helen. But it still says intercourse... *snort*

Shark Bait said...

huh huh...'intercourse'... huh huh

We're going to hell, aren't we?

Wendy said...

Shark Bait - All of us except Helen. She just doesn't see intercourse the same way we do.

Heh heh. I said intercourse.

Bad Girl said...

I myself scream "OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD!" during intercourse all the time....
