Religious officials are held to a high standard.

To “live a life above reproach” is a tall order.

In my life, I have seen no human - no matter how highly ranked or religiously engaged - be above reproach.

Leaders are human - and they should remember that when they step into leadership roles.

If you are a church leader, don’t be afraid to ask for help, for breaks and for prayers.

If you are not a church leader, be praying for your leaders. Offer them grace, and be sure they get the help and support they need, so they might continue to cling to the mystery that is our faith in Christ.
