We as people have a tendency to want to gloss over conflict. This is something I have been greatly struck by over the last few months, especially in the church. I find I am unfortunately sometimes more willing to reason and logic away the things I've done wrong than go through the work to have a dialogue with the person or people I've wronged. In my time in the church I have also noticed that the institution of the church tends to be pretty crummy at this as well. As such, the idea for this video was born.
In the way of love, this hardly scratches the surface, but my hope is that this becomes an invitation to conversation. Open up. Talk about how you've been hurt by the church, how individuals in the church may have wronged you. Not because we need to know, but because it may help you heal.
