We Don’t Talk About It

  It’s a memory I have.  Being in meetings and listening to people express their discontent and their difficulties with life and how things work.  That’s not the memory.  The memory is a conversation in between meetings.  It’s the memory of that phrase that is one of the major problems in churches in the south.  […]
