five issues the church should discuss more

I recently read an article in Relevant Magazine about the top five uncomfortable topics the church should discuss more. I have to say I agree, especially with the first two. I think people struggling with all of these issues can get caught up in their fear of divulging their "secret," whatever it may be. Some people tend to only show a certain side at church, like they have it all together. This makes it hard for people to come forward with these real hardships. Last year my church held a men's event with the purpose of discussing addiction, so I feel there is improvement. We need to keep that going.

Here are the top five topics:
  • Addiction
  • Sexuality
  • Sincere Doubt
  • Mental Illness
  • Loneliness
To read the full article, see here.

Are there any issues you think should be added to this list?
