If we don’t talk about controversial topics and issues in church…then where are we going to talk about them?
On social media? That seems to be working out well, isn’t it?
In line buying groceries? See how far that will get you.
At Thanksgiving? LOL. Seriously? Not if you really want to enjoy Thanksgiving.
I can tell you this much – our children are talking about controversial issues with their friends and at school. No, probably not in a formal educational setting, but more in passing.
How are we equipping them to talk about such things like sex, drugs, addictions, money, etc?
The church should be a place where these conversations can happen, without shame, without scapegoating, without guilt. Rather, with love.
