Are you sexually satisfied or thirsty? That’s the frank question Paul Graham, pastor of Potomac Conference’s Restoration Praise Center in Lanham, Md., asked earlier this year through Bible Boot Camp Unplugged, an online program on Blogtalkradio. Callers and panelists ended up discussing everything from married couples working with licensed sex therapists, to engaged couples being upfront about their physical desires in hopes of having happy marriages.

“I think there should be more seminars [like this] given,” Graham said during the broadcast. “Too many things are not expressed.”

He’s referring to the fact that, until more recently, few Seventh-day Adventist congregations have engaged in meaningful discussions about sex. His show clearly filled a need. More than 300 people tuned in for the live broadcast, and he says he still gets encouraging calls from people who have listened to the rebroadcast.
