I’ve been rolling something around in my brain for a few days and I’d love some feedback on it. The big question is: Does being real ruin your witness or your image as a Christian?
Here’s me. I’m just a screwed up soul that’s been saved from a dark existence by Jesus. I’ve blogged about the crap that’s happened to me and blogged about how that crap continues to affect my life. That’s real for me and though I could pretend it doesn’t exist, it will never leave from the shape of my life. But, I work for a church and with that comes some level of influence. Does being real in one realm make me lose my validity in another? Give me your thoughts on this. Should there be a line that isn’t crossed when you have a responsibility to a ministry?
