I’ve Been Hurt By the Church. Now What? Part 1 | Ep. 160

Episode 160

God’s design for the church is good. The church is meant to be a place of refuge and worship. It is meant to be a place where believers can meet together and worship God and live in community with one another. But, because of sin, the church doesn’t always live according to its good design. Church hurt is real, and it is painful. But thankfully, the grace of God is able to heal that hurt and allow us to move forward.

In this two part series, we talk about what church hurt is, how to handle it, what God says about it, and how to move forward onto the path of healing.

Maybe you have been hurt by your church as a whole, or maybe an individual in your church. Maybe you have been hurt by church leadership. Or maybe you are someone who has hurt someone else within your church. Regardless of the circumstance, this conversation is for you.
