The movie When Harry Met Sally has a famous dinner conversation where Harry states, “men and women can't be friends because the sex part always gets in the way.” He was neither the first nor the last to express a sentiment that has consistently brought fear and suspicion into cross-sex relationships. While we should be cautious in our society of affairs, divorce, and casual sex, the time has come to look beyond our societal issues and ask whether that fear and suspicion among brothers and sisters is all we can hope for in the family of Christ. We need diverse perspectives in all aspects of society—even in our interpersonal relationships. This seminar will explore this question biblically and theologically, and move forward with practical steps to form friend and colleague relationships with the opposite sex. Remember, Jesus had several close friends who were women.
God designed an equal and mutual partnership between men and women—together, they were to steward God’s world. What does this “blessed alliance” look like today? Learn what makes partnerships between men and women simultaneously satisfying and fruitful. Building on two decades of ministry experience and three years of doctoral study, Rob Dixon will help you discern ways to strengthen your partnerships so that they can become places of greater flourishing.
