We often do this with survivors of trauma. In this episode Mary DeMuth, author and advocate for sexual abuse victims, speaks to the issue of how Christians and Church Leaders often fail the survivors of trauma and how we can do better.

We’ve got Glory Upside Down (TAW022)

More
Episode 022 - We've Gotten God's Glory Upside Down I grew up learning a Christian story that the most important thing was God's glory.

To kick off season 2 of the podcast, I'm going to share with you how I'm learning we may have misunderstood God's glory. Show Notes Show notes will not be a transcript. At least...

Episode 019 - How Abiding is Possible Jesus told us to live connected to the vine. We often refer to that as the Abiding Life. If you grew up in the churh you probably heard about that a lot.
