As a pastor, I’m familiar with judgment. I’ve sat with countless victims over the years and have seen the pain in their eyes as they recount their stories. Stories of how the church rejected them, a friend betrayed them, or a callous comment cut them. There is nothing like the pain of judgment that leaves us vulnerable. There is nothing like Christians to shoot their wounded. Can you relate? Honestly, not a week goes by, I wonder if my feet will make too much noise on the egg shells covering the ground of the church. There is a special kind of irony at play when most who go to church on Sunday also feel like they don’t fit in. We all have that part of us if other’s knew, we’d suddenly feel very naked. We’re not alone.
