From shootings to COVID-19, our thinking about large gatherings is recalibrating. Do we really want to attend a church with thousands of strangers (especially with kids)? How long before the government limits large gatherings? Watching at home is the new reality. Is giving actually needed for production, or should I give it to my community of neighbors without jobs? What qualities in a church are important for my growth as a Christian, even from home?
My search to resolve the silent chaos of abuse led to little healing and mostly re-injury by telling my story to people who were clueless about pain. Eventually I found help in unexpected places that changed my perspective on the abuse. They’ve helped me heal and create life again.
