    I don’t think it’s that chilling. Just don’t be dumb enough to take your youth group skiing if you’re not qualified to oversee and train them. Not that hard.

      Gary, you are, rather dramatically, missing the point of the post.

    Sue your own church? It is unthinkable that Christians could blame their church and that the State could find the church liable.

    Thanks, Paul. Bouncing this to our Council and some other congregations.

    The once or twice yearly youth ski retreats were/are a highlights of the youth program in my old church. The kids either knew how to ski already or the parents paid for lessons the weekend of. Some kids even got hurt, no broken bones but falls nonetheless. If the parent had sued, and been awarded a judgment of this size, all four churches hosting the retreats would have been bankrupted. Times sure have changed.

    Because churches operate under the business laws of their respective states, I understand that congregations ought to have some type of risk management director, but “director of the child protection ministry”? Seriously?!?

    While smaller congregations (like mine), with their more personal relationships, are possibly less likely to be sued, they probably have the greatest risk because they are less likely to have someone looking diligently at risk management. Thank you for this reminder that while we are not of the world, we certainly are in it.
