ON THIS EPISODE
When a trusted and respected pastor or leader does something morally bankrupt, it HURTS. And, unfortunately, almost anyone who has been a part of the Church for any length of time can tell you a story of when it happened in their church or the church of someone they know.
In this episode, we want to explore why these situations happen so often. A spiritual leader has an extramarital affair, embezzles funds, or turns out to have an abusive relationship with other leaders. Is there a way to avoid this?
But even more than that, we want to discuss what it looks like to respond to one of these situations in a way that provides an opportunity for God to build our faith, rather than for the enemy to tear it down.
