People struggling with sexual addiction tell me that the church is the LAST place they feel comfortable asking for help. That's one reason I am so thrilled that we will be talking about sexual addiction during our upcoming regional workshop in Nashville (March 31 and April 1, 2017). One man called me, terrified, because his pastor asked that he confess his sins before the church - in detail. I couldn't help but wonder (if we could somehow insure the confessor could be granted immunity from the trauma of such a thing) if that pastor might be quite shocked - and maybe fired - if a sex addict REALLY made a full confession in front of an entire congregation on Sunday morning. Can you even imagine it? Here's a detailed article about confession. It sounds like it might be a helpful read....http://www.nacr.org/wordpress/89/cleaning-house-confession-and-sexual-addiction ...

In response to one of my posts inviting pastors to attend a regional workshop focusing on recovery and addiction, a pastor friend of mind said, "I'm just too busy! I know the subject matter is important, but my church expects me to be focusing on issues like church growth. I'm killing myself trying to succeed." Addiction takes many forms, doesn't it? This made me think about an article Dale Wolery wrote years ago...here it is if you are interested. www.nacr.org/wordpress/177/working-for-god... See MoreSee Less
