Our colleague, Rev. David Livingston has written a great post about the difficulty of preaching right now. The key point: at present pastors have to be extremely careful in choosing their words because “Words that a distant two years ago would have been seen as docile now cause people to leave churches.” Even when we’re extremely careful, we’re not perfect. I would join with David in asking you to talk to us if you find something we said hurtful.
