    Forgiveness Cliches Held Against Bible Stories

    Forgiveness Cliches Held Against Bible Stories

    How many of these cliches have you heard? "Forgiveness brings healing." "Forgiveness brings restoration." "Forgiveness causes the other to come to repentance." "Forgiveness unlocks a cage, only you find that you are setting yourself free." How do these cliches stack up against Scripture? Hopefully, this will help church people who haven't been through a violent crime to be more truthful and gracious about the messy realities of our favorite forgiveness stories, and it will help survivors to confidently walk through the grief, lament, and legal process without trying to live up to false non-ideals.

    Secondary Victimization: Interview #2 with Jimmy Hinton

    Secondary Victimization: Interview #2 with Jimmy Hinton

    It is not an abuser and a victim in a bubble; there are people around the abuser, and people around the victim, who also get hurt in the process of abuse. What should we know about secondary victims? What resources are out there? Why do religious cliches fall flat?

    Church, Abuse, Leadership, and Wisdom in the Face of the Unthinkable: Interview #1 with Jimmy Hinton

    Church, Abuse, Leadership, and Wisdom in the Face of the Unthinkable: Interview #1 with Jimmy Hinton

    What would you do if your father, your church's former pastor, was found out to have sexually molested children for over 40 years? What would you do if you were the church's only leader, and had been in leadership for only two years? 

    This is one man's story. It is a grueling story of unusual wisdom in the face of immense pain.

    Part 2: Rest--practical tips

    Part 2: Rest--practical tips

    In this episode, I address how to experience spiritual restfulness, physical rest, emotional rest, and mental rest. Be comfortable saying, "no," to good busy-ness in favor of high-quality productivity and high-quality rest. You were made for more than the rat race and perpetual restlessness.

    Part 1: Response to Listener Q on rest

    Part 1: Response to Listener Q on rest

    "I’m on a search for why the sabbath is such a big deal in the bible. My intuition says there’s a link between this and trauma and healing from trauma. Have any of you studied into this?" --Listener question on the Hope Beyond Trauma podcast group on Facebook.

    I didn't find any research on Sabbath and trauma, but we do know that “In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.” Rest is necessary! In this episode, I discuss why the need for rest is amplified for trauma survivors, what the Sabbath is, and what rest is not.
