Had a meeting last night with a representative of Church Mutual (insurance provider for churches) to go over our policies. He shared with us that they have two new sexual misconduct claims a week from churches.
He also explained that the more stuff a church has the more susceptible they are to lawsuits. If a church doesn’t have anything, what would people get for suing you anyway?!
The more stuff churches have the more they have to spend resources to care for the stuff and the more susceptible they are to losing their stuff. Jesus had no place to lay his head, he never got sued! They just killed him!
So, pick your poison. We live in a sick world.
