Protecting the Vulnerable with Julie Lowe

April 16, 2018



“Pop quiz: what is the first Bible passage that pops into your head when someone says ‘protect the vulnerable’? Go ahead, think about it for a second. The biblical theme of God protecting the vulnerable is not something I tend to hear us talk about a ton, which is why I was excited to spend some time today with Julie Lowe. She is probably the CCEF faculty member who has devoted the most time thinking about children, and that has naturally given rise to a special sensitivity to the weak and vulnerable in general. We spent our time talking about both the big biblical picture, and practical ways that we in the church can grow in living out the biblical mandate to protect the vulnerable around us.”
