Scott Mehl and Talitha Phillips on how removing political language breaks the silence and increases compassion
Talitha Phillips is CEO of Claris Health LA (an organization that equips and cares for individuals and families before, during and after pregnancy or sexual-health choices), and Scott Mehl is Lead Pastor of Cornerstone Church West LA - and they have an amazing partnership.
Scott has realized he can't stay silent and assume people will think the church has a holistic, nonpolitical view. But he has to present the complexity about all people involved in order to facilitate compassion.
Talitha talks about how silence and fear of sharing our own personal experiences keeps Christians from extending grace to the people impacted by abortion.
