Shattering Stereotypes

It's tempting to make sure people know who we're NOT - but wouldn't it be so much more effective to simply love others into seeing who we ARE...and Who we belong to? Read on as Jessica Leep Fick offers hands-on help in shattering stereotypes. Elisa Shattering Stereotypes By Jessica Leep Fick I don't think anyone wants to be "that Christian." Do you know the kind I'm talking about? It's the kind we see in the media: stereotypes of Soapbox Sally ranting against certain people groups or behaviors; Judgmental Jenny, who is quick to judge others but not willing to examine her own life.
