Unfortunately, this is a horrible time for the church. Let me make it clear, it is the church alone to blame for its maladies, not those who have been victimized by the church. Megachurches and their “celebrity pastors” are falling left and right. Denominations are splitting over how to love their LGBTQ neighbors. Other denominations and churches are caught up in sex abuse scandals. At this rate, why do we as Christians blame those who are not Christian with their resentments and their skepticism about the church? Furthermore, why as Christians do we blame other Christians for why they leave the church?

Whenever something happens that disrupts these things we desire, we are faced with how to react to the change... the disruption in our lives.

Most of us go through a short time of panic and anger because things were comfortable and nice and neat, but now things are not so and we must figure out how to get things back to the way they were... or more accurately, the way things should be.
