A friend called me out on something this morning.
The last few days, I’ve written a couple of blog posts driven by my processing of the horrific death of precious little Hailey Owens. My friend said that he was pretty sure that Jesus wouldn’t have leveraged the emotional capital of a still grieving family in order to provide flannelgraph for His campaign. My friend is right. I’ve deleted the posts.
I’m sorry. I’ve sinned grievously. I’ve been thoughtless and cruel. It’s not about the blog, but I lost one reader whom I truly love over this. That’s one too many to be driven away by my cavalier handling of the sacred.
I was wrong. Will you please forgive me? I always welcome (and desperately need) challenges to my blind spots.
