Had the honor this weekend of speaking at a men’s retreat and we discussed how we can be more inclusive in ministry. I want you all to know that your church leaders do struggle with the hard issues. We are aware of the racism, sexism and the tone deafness that some of you see in church. It bothers us too but we are also listening to God for answers. Please be patient with us and pray for us. It’s easy to be reactionary to the issues we see today but we want to honor God with listening and thoughtful action.
