    A word from Pastor Darryl about Hard Questions:

    After years of ministry, I have heard the following statement many times:
    “The Bible says it; I believe it; that settles it.” I can hear the loud “amen” from the amen corner. Yet experience has taught me that in the midst of the crowd sits someone who silently struggles and is thinking, “I’m not sure,” “I have questions,” or “I’m struggling.”

    I am firmly and deeply convinced that the church should be a safe place for people to ask hard questions. Questions that make us uncomfortable, questions that make us think and examine what we believe. Why do I say this? Because I have complete confidence in the Bible and in Jesus Christ. I am convinced that we must answer the “hard questions,” or we will continue to risk the faith of the next generation. Young people see the shallowness of most people who claim to be Christians and are unwilling to simply swallow pat answers and clichés from them. Let’s step up and allow honest and open dialogue, believing in the power of the gospel and the authority of God’s Word.

    This summer, it is my desire that these topics will help you to strengthen your faith and lead you to engage in relevant, meaningful conversations with those who are unchurched and/or far from God.

    June 12 - Deconstruction

    Framed as the new trendy threat to Christianitydeconstruction has unfortunately become a “catch-all” term for a wide range of spiritual experiences. In short, it’s when Christians re-examine their faith – and it’s sometimes called evangelical deconstruction, or faith deconstruction.

    Depending on who’s using the word, faith deconstruction can be a complete demolition of Christian belief, a critical re-appraisal of one’s faith tradition, or an honest acknowledgment of doubt and questions.” Joe Terrell
