I was grateful to share a Father’s Day message called: “Wounds from a Father: our journey toward healing & honor” at Bethany in La Crosse.
While I was prayerfully considering what message to share with a church family, experiencing some pain in transition, I connected with our FLD Church Leadership Catalyst Brian Thorstad. Brian encouraged me to acknowledge the elephant in the room and to share a potentially challenging but healing message.
Heartfelt chats, tears, and prayer with dear ones between worship services confirmed the truth in Brian’s wise counsel. Sweeping pain under the rug doesn’t help anybody involved.
