Rachael Denhollander’s former church released a statement to the Washington Post.
Many will rejoice, and it seems that there are several good things that have happened. Maybe some progress is being made.
But let’s watch for the day when truth is enough.
Let’s watch for the day when there’s enough humility and integrity to listen to truth, even if that truth comes from one brave voice. Enough humility and integrity to listen the first time. Enough humility and integrity to stop the endless knee-jerk reaction of circling the wagons to protect the abusers and throwing the victims to the wolves.
It shouldn’t take the interest and scrutiny under the glaring light of a media headline for the church leadership to get the message.
Truth should have been enough. Truth should be enough.
