Letting Go of the Strip Pole and Clinging to the Cross

Recently I have come across a blog of yet another Preacher’s Kid, PK as I have been so long referred. As I have been reading her story I am amazed at her honesty and openness, a story that maybe would make many in the Church “Uncomfortable” or “Uneasy”. And it is her story that grabs my attention because it is a story of taboo. We as a church when made felt to be uncomfortable or uneasy tend to say, “Let’s not talk about this” or “She’s not meant to be here.” And sadly, as Joy is so desperately trying to inform the Church is that Jesus says otherwise. Jesus says bring to me your sick, your desolate, your abandoned, your hookers and prostitutes, and let me, who is God, show you how God loves. How God forgives. How God’s grace is sufficient for ALL things. ALL people are welcomed to the Church and if her story makes you a bit uneasy or uncomfortable, then maybe we as the Church of Jesus Christ need to remember once more the purpose of his death and resurrection. Thank you Joy for sharing your story and my hope, my prayer, is that the church may learn how to better represent Christ to a very broken world.
