Divorce affects the lives of so many children in our society today, but how can the church respond? I appreciate Wayne Stocks and his heart to help hurting children and their families through his new website called divorceministry4kids.com. Here's why he started the website:
Since 1972, over 1,000,000 kids each year have joined the ranks of the children of divorce. These kids face struggles which are very unique and very real. And, unfortunately, many of our churches are ill-equipped to deal with the special needs of this growing segment of their congregations. Whether they worry about addressing the issue of divorce for fear of alienating their congregations, pretend that the problem simply does not exist, or simply fail to recognize the magnitude of the issue, many churches are ill-equipped to deal with, or minister to, children of divorce.
