What is true #christian #forgiveness in an #abuse situation?

These notes are from my Albany area’s Christian Response to Sexual Abuse–all typos are my own… and make sense of what Justice is in a more mature way than demanding forgiveness in (any kind) of power abuse situation. I’ve had a colleague use this material for financial abuse as well. Also, as one colleague noted, … Continue reading

“Just because y…

“Just because you believe in Jesus, doesn’t make you superhuman” My husband on what congregant’s expect pastors to magically “know” without telling us…..I find this observation useful in so many situations
