    • Christianity

A week ago a sermon clip from a prominent pastor was shared widely on social media. In it the pastor had some pointed things to say about those talking about unhealthy churches and Christian leaders. Is speaking up like I’m doing here “dogging” on the church? Jenai Auman, writer and advocate for spiritual abuse survivors joins me for this conversation and later in the episode, author Mary DeMuth shares about her new book The Most Misunderstood Women of the Bible. {00:03:35} Jenai Auman and the Wilderness Forum {00:08:15} Seeing institutional protection in faith communities
{00:11:30} The cost of being an advocate. We didn’t choose this.
{00:16:06} The Evangelical Industrial Complex
{00:20:51} The Exodus
{00:24:31} The sermon clip that inspired our conversation
{00:27:36} Are we expecting grace without offering it?
{00:32:24} Are we still welcome at the table?
{00:36:16} Wrap-up of our conversation regarding the MC video.
