About-

Our sexuality is a key part of who we are and how we live as God’s people. Many have yearned for a resource on this matter that is helpful and useful to lay people, seekers, and ministers. The stories included here come from singles, marrieds, gays, lesbians, parents, teens, young adults, and senior citizens, people of faith who struggle with their feelings and behavior around sexual matters. What honors God? What is acceptable to Jesus? How do the Scriptures inform and shape us? This is not a dogmatic or a denominational treatise but a minister’s own personal and pastoral reflections on the implications of God’s call in the life of faith. It’s a chance to talk out loud with you and provide a resource for living and a catalyst for conversation on what it means to live in God’s light and reflect God’s love in a holy and hopeful community.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“For adult Christians wanting to explore sexual moral values in the light of traditional Christian teaching, Faithful Sexuality contains the stories told to a thoughtful, listening Lutheran pastor, and his progressive reflections.”

—Virgil C. Funk, retired Catholic priest, Diocese of Richmond, VA



“With a seasoned pastor’s sensitivity Grafwallner shares stories, experiences, and wisdom from hundreds of people about a wide variety of issues related to faithful sexuality and our most intimate relationships. For some his perspective will be too liberal, and for others it will be too traditional. But in any case his brief reflections and stimulating questions serve as a ‘catalyst for conversation’ on a topic that the church ‘for the most part has been silent.’”

—Mark S. Brocker, pastor, St. Andrew Lutheran Church, Beaverton, OR
