A tough issue... but one that is so very important:
How should churches handle sexual abuse allegations? What about the dangers of dealing with them internally? Do you think those outside of the Church see a culture of "cover up"? Why? What about the faith of those who have been victims? Is it destroyed? What about our credibility as the Church to a watching world? What can we do?
This morning we also hear from Moody Bible Institute's Dr. Andrew Schmutzer, as featured on a recent episode of Chris Fabry Live entitled Helping Survivors of Sexual Abuse from February 13.
Join the discussion from 6-9 am ET.
