New 30 day Challange

After reading this article on the My Fox Tampa Bay website, I got a new 30 day challange for all the people in Bloggerville.
==========
TAMPA - A pastor has a new challenge for his parishioners. It involves sex - a subject that may be taboo in many congregations.
The Relevant Church in Tampa's Ybor City has issued a 30-day sex challenge.
"It's going to be tempting and awkward at the same time for sure," said parishioner Brent Cayson.
Single men and women can't have sex for 30 days, and married couples are urged to have it every day.
"If you look at studies, studies say in 30 days you can develop a habit," said Pastor Paul Wirth.
It definitely caught wives in the church by surprise.
"Our married people are far more fearful than our single people," said Wirth.
"Sex is about more than intercourse and that's what we're trying to tell people," said church member Jarret Haas.
Wirth has found biblical references that he says suggest Jesus disapproved of pre-marital sex and promoted sex in marriage. So, he believes people connect to God through life-long commitment.
That's why he tells his single followers to abstain, and his married followers to indulge.
Wirth is a former Baptist. He founded his non-denominational ministry three years ago. And he markets his church by tackling unusual or controversial topics.

=====================
OK, Now for our challange. For those of you that are not married, None for you. Sorry.

For those of us that are married, I will make it a little easier, Spend at least 15 minutes a day with your spouse, in a romantic way. I will let you decide the definition of "Romantic Way".
If you are up for the challange, let me know and those of you that HONESTLY complete the challange, there will be a prize for you.

LMAO!! I bet my hubby would be all over that! Me, I could actually go 30 days without it and be fine. Sad, huh?

I caught this headline, too. Very interesting. I used to think that all married people eventually grow to hate each other. Sad, huh? I had some interesting role models, to say the least. I needed something like this or maybe a pastor like that guy to knock some sense into me. Fortunately, people can change. :D

I'm in!

So, it's funny that this comes from a church in Ybor city, because frankly, all I've ever seen in Ybor city are restaurant, bars and cigar stores. Lots of sex there in Ybor, but not too many churches.
