We read in scripture that God is our refuge....our strength....a safe place. When we need a place for shelter from life's turmoil.....church should be an option.
But what happens when church is not a safe place?
In my Doctor of Ministry class today we explored possible ministries for young adults. In the discussion we talked about homosexuals, and biracial persons. Often church is not willing to allow some people in. If a person can't come in....how can a person learn and experience God's presence and power.
Sadly for some....church is the last place they can turn too for safety and support.
