  • God's grace is the real scandal in church

    This past week I met with some members and the pastor of a local church that had been rocked by scandal recently.

    A church employee had stolen a lot of money from them, robbing them not only of their funds, but also of their trust.

    And as what often happens when a church faces a scandal, people pointed fingers and assigned blame.

    Why didn’t you know about this? How could you let this happen? You should’ve seen it coming.
