So much of what’s promoted as Christianity is actually hurtful and unloving.
And so often, people in churches (and yes, including this church) fail to reflect the love of Christ—we do harm instead of good. How do we heal the wounds of toxic religion?
First, we’ll acknowledge and confess that harm has been done. We’ll try to separate the true God of love from the harm done in God’s name. And, we’ll work to create a safe space where truth can be shared, grace extended, and acceptance experienced. We’re praying together, “Lord, help our unbelief.”
