Is it loving to ignore sin? -

(I Preached this sermon in response to John 1:1–18 and Jeremiah 31:7–14. You can find the full worship service on our church website — www.ststephenlc.org.)

Which is more loving? To acknowledge and deal with difficult and uncomfortable realities in order to arrive at a resolution and have a path forward. Or to avoid conflict and put those things aside, not talk about them, or even acknowledge them because they are uncomfortable, and we don’t think it would be loving to make someone or ourselves uncomfortable?
