Thanks for posing this topic Jon. This topic is dear to my heart because I come from what many would call a dysfunctional family. So dysfunctional that I often get surprised I came out somewhat normal (lol…that sounds funny). Anyways, most all my cousins and my younger brother are deep into gangs. Everytime I go to family outings or a simple visit I am faced with the dilema of loving them and hating the sin. It is very difficult for me. Although I made it clear to them how I feel it still gets difficult from time to time. So I just pray for patience and compassion.
