Messy: Saved to Serve Series Part One

Type your paragraph here.Grin and bear it was usually how First Lady Catrice Greene was able to make it through considering she never wanted to be a First Lady to begin with. Growing up a PK (preacher’s kid) she knew firsthand the types of issues and drama that can plague a church, and the pastor’s family in particular. Besides, why suffer through what it seemed her mother did?

Unfortunately this time tolerance is not the key and not one thing was funny when a serious accusation about Pastor Carlton Greene touched up close and personal. Instead of starting and ending where it began, it had a rippling effect throughout the congregation. But what should be done about the very thing that God says in His Word that He hates? Sweep it under the rug, pretend it did not happen, or act like it is the norm?

“Messy” will not just bring you church drama, but will address it and find a resolve that will bring healing and love.
