An open meeting simply means that there will be men at this meeting who have not openly acknowledged a struggle with maintaining sexual purity or having a sexual addiction. As we all know, almost every man struggles with some sort of sexual purity issue, however, not every man is required to be open in admitting this issue. I have invited the church’s pastoral staff and elders to this meeting as well as various therapists from around the Houston area.
I hope the regular attendees to the Saturday morning meeting will make an extra effort to attend this open meeting in celebration of 2 years of service for God in the realm of sexual purity. Please feel free to invite any man you know over the age of 18, even if they say they don’t struggle with sexual purity. Attending an “open” meeting may help them ease into their own recovery rather than thinking they are attending a meeting for sex addicts.
