My grandfather is a minister, my father is a pastor, and I’ve worked in a church.
I’ve seen dirt.
After living in four cities and being a part of three church-splits, I have felt my fair deal of pain. I have felt the confusion when friends begin doubting church leadership I have trusted. I’ve felt the anger when people leave the church without explaining why. I’ve felt the world tip sideways when a pastor’s secret life is exposed.
I’ve felt a lot.
But I don’t have to tell you that. The reality is if you are a Christian, you’ve felt a lot too by now.
