    378: Paul Daugherty on Considering Suicide as a Pastor, The Strength of a Lie, Dumping Sugar-Coated Platitudes, Fake Prayers, and Why You Can't Just Pray Trauma Away

    378: Paul Daugherty on Considering Suicide as a Pastor, The Strength of a Lie, Dumping Sugar-Coated Platitudes, Fake Prayers, and Why You Can't Just Pray Trauma Away

    This week, we're sitting down with Paul Daugherty, pastor of Victory Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to talk in raw and vulnerable fashion about his brush with considering suicide. And before I go on, I want to share that if you or anyone you know is considering suicide, please stop this podcast and dial 988 on your phone right now. It's a 24-hour crisis hotline and help is available. Aside from that part of the conversation, Paul and I discuss the strength of a lie to empower our lives and why we need to dump the plastic, sugar-coated platitudes when dealing with loss and pain. We'll also discuss fake prayers and why you can't just pray trauma away. In a culture so consumed by facades, I'm very thankful for Paul's transparency in our conversation and trust you'll receive great value from it.

Emma Carlotta ,

A true gift

Just recently listened to this podcast for the first time…when interviewing Dr. Curt Thompson (whose books have been a major part of my transformational journey). I have shared that episode with several and have listened to it several times…it had so much to take away. I have also listened to a few other episodes due to the host having a real gift for asking questions that lead to rich conversations. Thank you for this podcast that truly transforms…..

Such a powerful show!! You bring what we need!

I have listened to the last 2 episodes in mental health with Dr. Anita Phillips and neurosurgeon Dr. Leo. They have blown my mind away. I am so so thankful for them. I have been introduced to beautiful resources and will continue to grow with them. Which is where I want to be all of the time, in growth inside of truth. Thank you Christopher, thank you guests for giving us such wisdom.

Win Today will provide wisdom, thoughtfulness on subjects and deep dives into places sometime we do not want to go, but they serve only as places of growth for our beings.

I have also listened to all of the Jamie Winship podcasts which have been so profound as well! Bringing the truth of how we discover who we are in Christ and living that out! So powerful!
