Sacred Wounds

Posted by Ooltewah UMC on Sunday, July 15, 2018
There are bad people in this world: people who are insensitive to others’ pain, who focus more on themselves than the people around them, who push you away just as you were needing them to tell you everything’s going to be alright. We wish they didn’t exist, but, unfortunately, they do. And we react to these people by either severing ties with them completely, or giving in to their behavior and allowing it to grow. Either way, these people leave a gaping, painful wound in our lives.

Unfortunately, the church has done this to God’s people as well. There are believers walking out of their churches, bruised and battered, and leaving with questions of faith that will go unanswered.

In the next 3 weeks, we will be exploring what causes the wounds left by the church and the steps we should take to heal them.
