In the show I unpack the following lessons from this sad story:
- Be sure your sexual sins will find you out.
- The church MUST protect the victims of sexual abuse…not the predators!
- Authentic transparency trumps artificial appearance.
- There is far more at stake than the reputation of a single person or church.
