Ralph Neighbour’s Crying Member Parable:

Sunday school class has started. About ten
minutes into the lesson, class members
begin to notice that a woman in the back
row is crying very softly.

When her weeping becomes obvious to
everyone, the class leader gently
asks what is wrong. She shares that
her husband left her the night before and
continues to cry inconsolably.

What would happen next in your church?
What is the priority: task or people?
