That is really helpful, Theresa. We could all use help in crafting questions. I am finding that issues and questions that you and I often think about as part of our jobs can be difficult for people who don’t think about this in their regular work. Just the other day I was talking with a Member Health person about how to ask developmental questions for career evaluation, and she remarked that I was quite intuitive. This could be true, but I also have had to develop this skill through practice. I think most people would find the skill develops with practice. In light of this, I’d recommend a mix of practicing with these questions, discussing with colleagues, and bringing in professional help.
I want us to discuss next the whole arena of sexual purity and attraction. I have been saying to organizations that they need to place morality issues like this under the purview of their statement of faith. This might be too big of an issue to deal with in one response, but I would like to hear how you might categorize these kinds of questions…
