Five to Live By: The Penn State Edition

Linking you to the top 5 Christian blog posts of the week—posts that provide robust, rich, and relevant insights for living. 

Today’s Five to Live By focuses on the horrendous sexual abuse of young boys by a former Penn State football coach. 

Protecting the Powerless

It’s quite rare that I reference my own posts in the Five to Live By. Today I make an exception. In Protecting the Powerless, I address the church’s role in protecting children from sexual abuse and women from sexual harassment.
