The Elephant Exposed

A few weeks ago, I wrote a review of Elizabeth Marquardt's book Between Two Worlds for the BreakPoint web site. Here's a snippet:
"During my freshman year at a Christian college, my resident director—a child of divorce and a psychology major—led a discussion group for children of divorce. It was a wonderful release to talk about the elephant in the middle of the church, and it felt a little subversive talking about this secretive thing that no one wanted to acknowledge." more here...

Elizabeth posted an excerpt from an email today on the Family Scholars web site. The woman who emailed her had taken a bold step and lifted up the children of divorce as a prayer request. I'm half cheering for her and half weeping for the fact that this should be a bold step. Caring for the hurting should be our heartbeat as Christians, even the messy hurting in our midst.
