We went there!
Yes, we went there. It’s a bigger deal than even I realized. Our church has done a 6 weeks message series on #MeToo and #ChurchToo. Both of these conversations have been trending hashtags on social media for the past 4 or 5 months that have given a bold platform and safe space for individuals who have experienced sexual assault and sexual abuse.
It was a hard conversation to speak about – to acknowledge that for some, the church has been a place that has wounded and not healed. Unfortunately there are some Pastors and Church Leaders who have abused their seats of power and privilege and influence. I don’t believe it’s a majority of churches. Some people would want you to believe that. I don’t. I think that the vast majority of churches, and Pastors and Church Leaders are doing the right thing and living the right way, as well as creating a space place for those who are victims.
Listen to these two messages/teachings as we dig into some heavy stuff. The first message is a message that I spoke about #ChurchToo and #ChurchHurt.
The second message is a message that we done the previous week by my Pastor and our church, along with two of our members are trained, clinical Counselors where some very clear steps and strategies were provided.
Finally – if I can help in any way or assist you, if you have experienced #ChurchHurt, please let me know. We absolutely don’t want you to suffer in silence.
