Thank you to Jenny Gehman for lifting up our barbed wires (Columns, May 26). Many have felt the barbs but have not been brave enough to say, “Ouch, that hurt.” They’ve walked away from the church or the small group that could not listen. What can we do to help them feel safe? Listen to them, hug them, cry with them, pray with them, visit them, feel their pain. Walk with them, encourage them. Be Christ to them.
