We’re really grateful for our friends over at the Pulpit Fiction podcast who are having accessible conversations about the lectionary texts each week. In particular we love the conversation they did last year with writer and theologian Rob Bell. Check them out and be sure to subscribe.
This episode we’re talking about apologizing in the era of #MeToo and #ChurchToo. We talk about the different kinds of apologies, why genuine apologies are so important (and hard), and the dynamics of accepting apologies. We talk about the four components of a genuine apology that was developed for elementary school kids but is a useful tool for grown-ups too. And, we critique the emphasis in many churches on offering forgiveness to those who have done the harming, even if the person has refused to accept responsibility or change their behavior.
