Growing Intimacy in a Sexually-Charged Culture Part 2

 
Song of Solomon is a book that will most certainly make you blush, but at the same time it is hailed as one of the most romantic pieces of ancient literature.  This week we explore the story it shares of a young couple falling in love and growing in intimacy with one another.  Daily devotionals that accompany each day's reading are also available on Facebook. They are created by a great Ginghamsburg unpaid servant team. You do not have to be a Facebook user to access them. View here.
