Every once in a while, I’m surprised by who reads this blog. For instance, I was contacted by someone yesterday from a southern state in which I’ve never lived who “found [me] online” and is interested in talking more about becoming part of the community we lead here in Lincoln. Crazy! And I’m not even on Facebook!
Anyway, after reading the piece I just finished about “one of the most personally disturbing comments I’ve heard in months” my wise wife encouraged me not to post it just in case – for some amazingly crazy reason – the person who made the comment were to read it and – by some chance – take offense to what I wrote.
I care for this person, and I’d never want them to be hurt, especially by my words.
To be clear (because I know this is sounding much juicier than it really is), this comment was personally disturbing because of what it revealed about the Church. And I love the Church. I wrote nothing that criticized the person. Their comment just spun me into a hurricane of reflection that touched-down on some sensitive areas. And I had to write about it.
I still think it’s well-worth reading. 🙂 If you’re still interested, follow the clues and email me [nathan(at)nathanoates(dot)com] and I’ll pass it on…maybe. ha ha!
