This past week, I shared the following links on social media and I think they’re worth sharing here too:
Women Pastors, Women Preachers, and the Looming Test of the Southern Baptist Convention
“This past week, Saddleback Community Church in California ordained three women as pastors. In a development described by the church as “historic,” the church posted a photograph of the ordinations with the text: ‘Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren and others pray over the first three women the church has ordained as pastors.'”
Covenant Eyes launches new program to help men break free from porn use
CE keeps breaking new ground in helping in the fight against this plague.
Trauma retreat for military sex assault survivors used sex offender as ‘peer mentor’
Unreal. This would be like your ward elder or pastor being a convicted sex offender and you, as an abuse victim, are expected to seek pastoral care from them. What was that doctor thinking?
We, the church of Jesus Christ, have to keep kicking at the darkness until it bleeds daylight. It starts with this kind of self-awareness.
