Church Hurt. Whoever coined this phrase should get a Nobel prize for Truth. Who would have imagined that some of the most memorable church moments, or moments in life for that matter, would be those that evolved around the topic of church hurt. We certainly expect hurt from our family, hurt from our friends, even hurt from total strangers. But to be hurt by those that profess to know, love and serve the same God that I know, love and serve was more than I could have ever fathomed. Consequently, this book was borne out of the conversations and eventual revelation received from God Himself regarding the pain experienced as the result of church experiences. This subject is approached in an effort to take a candid look at "church hurt," the effects it has on us as Christians, and ultimately the positive results it can have on our Christian growth.
