Here’s a question for those of us who are part of church families. What the H • E * Double Toothpicks is going on around the subject of divorce? Why is it that so many people we interview who are dealing with divorce or serious marital issues are feeling the church is no longer a safe place for them?
What’s your answer: is it: “Good! God must be convicting them, because we all know He hates divorce,” or “It’s no wonder with all the rush to judgment and lack of resources to deal with divorce,” or “Wow—never thought of it that way.
There must be some way we can let love win and God sort out the details!”
We’d love to hear your experience. We’re pretty convinced there are some churches out there doing more harm than good. But even more important, we want to learn from the church families who have found a loving path, where even if the marriage can’t be restored, at least the church community will commit to restoring the person.
