What do you think of when you hear the words, “safe house?” I think of witness protection, or a hideout for spies, or even a home for women escaping abusive relationships. A safe house can simply be a secret place for sanctuary, a place where a person can hide from possible danger. In this series, I’d like for us to examine how a church might be a sort of safe house, a refuge for people whose lives haven’t always been perfect. I believe this was very important to Jesus. The question driving this series is: Do you think most people experiencing brokenness and failure would think of church as a safe place to find refuge?
