This piece should be read from the front of every church.
Not because every church is dismissive of emotion, but because every gathering of believers should proactively affirm the rightful place of emotion alongside learning, growth, and our aging human bodies: they are part of how we’ve been created, an important way we interact with the world and circumstances we’ve been given.
Without emotion we are less than God created us to be. To deny its role is to reject part of God’s plan.
