So you have dismantled your faith, now what? Is your only option nihilism, narcissism, cynicism, bitterness, or nothing? Where do you go from here? What was the purpose of all the deconstruction? I want to invite you to shift your attention to the new ideas, new perspectives, new possibilities, new awareness, and new conceptions that pushed out your old ones. Today I want to invite you to begin reconstructing.
Religious Abuse Recovery Specialist Connie A. Baker, MA LPC joins us again we we continue the Religious Trauma message series.
Religion both heals and hurts. At its best, it feeds, clothes, and comforts those in need. At its worst, it steals, kills, and destroys in the name of God. After centuries of internalizing damning messages, toxic theologies, and scriptural abuse, wounded bodies have walked away from religion altogether. Some became bitter, while others remained, confused, devastated, and skeptically unravelling any notion of God. With certified therapists as our guides, we will explore what trauma is, how to express and recover emotions, and how to rebuild and recover from its devastating effects. Join us as we walk the gentle path to recovery.
