Forgiving the Church

forgiving the church

Today, I am honored to be a part of Quarter Life Conference by speaking on a topic close to my heart–forgiving the church.

When it comes to my heart for the church–I’d say it has been growing since I was 5 years old! That’s the day I asked God to come into my heart, forgive me of my sin, and make me new! In the 25 years since I became a Christian–I’ve encountered many hurts from people who call themselves followers.

People who go to church.

And I’ve also hurt other people.

None of us are perfect, and in light of my new book Forgiving Others, Forgiving Me, I wanted to personally share my heart  why I believe it’s possible to forgive the church. Please watch my video Forgiving The Church or watch the video below.

I hope you’ll join me and the 13 other AMAZING speakers on the topic of church.

Also, I’ve gathered some pretty amazing books on the topic of church from a few of those speaking. You can win a copy of the book of your choice, by tweeting with the #QLC hashtag and the book title you wish to win.  Winners will be chosen on June 22th by midnight.
