YHC was looking forward to sharing prepared remarks on judgementalism, but they will have to wait until next time (day after tomorrow, Futurama). Part of my world got rocked yesterday. A friend , a guy I’ve known for 15+ years, we see each other a couple times a year, been to my house, I’ve been to his, doesn’t live in Omaha so not in F3, but I would’ve described him as a HIM, loving husband and father, takes kids boating and fishing, accomplished high school speech and debate history and subsequent teaching career, coached and took daugher to national speech and debate championship, which she won. He was arrested yesterday for child pornography. Hitting me like a ton of bricks. Never would’ve suspected. Life is over as he knew it. Life for his family forever altered. Daughters are high school students where he taught. Heaven forbid I forget about the victims, whoever or wherever they are. Do not take offense when I say this, I knew him as well as I know anyone here, if any of you are in anything like this situation, caught up in child porn, get help. Get out! You can be helped and redeemed. Do not let it ruin you. I cannot stop thinking about what this means. The burden of shame. To lose your freedom. No more shopping for a birthday gift for your daughter with your M, like I did last night. No more celebrations of birthdays or holidays. No travel. No more normal days with family or friends. I weep for that family. But I also have joy for all of us, here, who should never take for granted the freedom we have to do all of those things. We are free to come out here in the gloom, even when it is stupid cold like right now, for some first F, some second F happening right now. We are here to get the most out of life and that alone is joyful. Thank you for being here with me.
YHC closed in prayer,
