I kiss dating goodbye

For a long time I ignored the voices of those who didn’t appreciate my book or its ideas on relationships.I heard about people who felt like the only way to be accepted by God was to do the things the church culture seemed to demand and live up to a standard that the “good families” set.I heard about ways that we leaders hadn’t listened to those who disagreed with us.And I knew it was true because I saw that mindset in my own life.
My eyes were opened to the fact that in a church culture even well-intentioned practices and godly values can be applied in a way that deeply hurt people. Two years ago I stepped down from being a pastor to attend a graduate school of theology (it’s a long story and I talk more about it ).
As I concluded the message I said, “If there are ways that the leadership of your pastors has been unhelpful I want to hear from you.” Wonderfully, people responded.
