    I just shared this on Facebook. This book looks interesting especially since I am just coming out of a 10-year blind spot toward the church as a whole, and tiptoing back into the fray.

    This is a great post on a complicated subject. I think it is soooo easy to fall into what we don’t stand for in terms of beliefs but. U h harder to stand for compassion and empathy towards those outside and inside of the church community. We indeed are a work in progress and need constant reminders of our need for grave and forgiveness towards ourselves and others.

    Thank you Jessica for a thought provoking post. I too believe that instead of rushing to judgement, we should gain understanding of, and show compassion towards, individuals with troubled lives. Also, the Compassion, Courage, Commission chart helps to make sense of why we and our fellow believers are the way we are!
