You may or may not have picked up on a theme for the pastor’s column this month. Purity. What a foreign concept in our society! Nobody on TV is talking about purity. Nobody in Washington is talking about purity. Surprisingly, not many in our churches are talking about purity. The outside world doesn’t care about it, and the church is too nervous to discuss it. But here’s the reality: whether outside the church or in, we aren’t pure these days. The sin of self has led us to pursue everything but purity in our lives.
