My wife took two of our grandkids to church, where we are members.
My grandaughter, 14, was walking my grandson, 5, from the nursery after church (they are cousins). The new pastor walked up and stated
"we don't do teen moms at this church".
My grandaughter has had typical teen problems, and church has always helped keep her on the right track. This remark hurt her badly.
How can a pastor, who is college educated, and supposedly intelligent, make such a stupid assumption?
What if one was a teen mom? Isn't it the mission of the church to minister to all, especially those who need it the most?
This has destroyed our confidence in the new church leader; if this is how his mind works what will be next?
We really don't need an answer, we know what to do; just wanted to see if others have had similar experiences.
