Ministry Today – Serving and empowering church leaders

QUOTE: "I felt I was twice damaged. First, by the knowledge that my husband had a secret life, and second, by the fact that I was cut off by my church family at the time I needed them most. … We received as much judgment from those who profess to be Christian as those who don’t. So I realized that Christians are just people. They aren’t any better than anyone else. … Somehow Christianity has become about personal righteousness rather than about accepting that we all fail and we all need a savior—of which Ted is a perfect example." —Gayle Haggard, explaining in her new book, Why I Stayed, the depth of hurt she experienced from her church family following the high-profile sex scandal involving her husband, Ted Haggard [gazette.com, 1/27/10]
