With the disappointing news of some of our Christian heros abusing their power coming to light, it seems like this is the episode we need right now. Diane talks to me today about the realities of power and abuse in the church, how our posture towards power needs to change and where do we go from here. I believe this conversation will be inclusive of everyone’s questions and concerns.
Diane answers questions like...
Why is it difficult for us to face abuse and misuse of power in the church? What is holding us back?
How has Christendom been seduced by power?
What would you say to someone who has experienced the misuse of power or abuse within the church?
