Divorced from the church – how you can pray for us

by on July 15, 2011

A comment on the last post said,

As for how the church deals with divorcees, in my experience churches often come across, unequipped, unaware and unwilling to deal with the complicated issues of sin and grace that divorce brings up.

That sums up our challenge in Canterbury: we’re involved with all these divorced people, yet we have little experience or background in reaching out to them or in including them in church life. We’re having to learn on the job – which often means learning from our mistakes!

We’re pretty green.

We need you to pray for us, that we would embody the grace of God, and be wise, faithful stewards of the gospel of Jesus as we seek to commend it to these vulnerable people.

(Thanks to those who’ve shared stories, thoughts and questions with us. Keep them coming!)
