This message was originally given by Pastor Tim Bayly on 2/19/2017 at Clearnote Church (Bloomington, IN) as part of the 2016 Shepherd’s Conference, The Enemy Within: Sexual Abuse in the Church.

But even more importantly, we must work from within to build a culture of healthy intimacy, a culture of honesty and normalcy. And even then, we cannot rest totally secure. How do we best protect our children without becoming slaves to fear?
