154 – Dealing with Sexual Abuse in the Church

In this episode I address a heavy topic of how leaders should respond when sexual abuse in exposed in the church.  The reason I felt led to speak into this issue is because of conversations I’ve been having recently in response to a story that has captured the attention of national media.

Here are a few links to the story if you want to do some reading of your own:

In the show I unpack the following lessons from this sad story:

  1. Be sure your sexual sins will find you out.
  2. The church MUST protect the victims of sexual abuse…not the predators!
  3. Authentic transparency trumps artificial appearance.
  4. There is far more at stake than the reputation of a single person or church.
