The change of heart requires that we be both real and safe. This isn’t new to the congregation, but in this sermon we will explore both more fully. “Real” means authenticity, integrity, truth. “Safe” means safe to explore, to heal, to grow, to be real, to struggle with doubt, sin, change, etc. It does NOT mean acceptance of all behavior and thought—especially for Christians. Where is the balance between “real” and “safe”? When we find that balance, we will have Jesus’ heart!
