Do these leaders, donned in religious apparel, carrying these titles to oversee God’s people, intend to hurt us? I’d like to think that often, that is not their intent. I’d like to believe that more often than not they are simply leaning unto their own understanding and blinded to the deeper issues striving within them. Does that justify the hurt? No. But maybe it helps us to understand a little bit more, so that we can forgive.
