The bible is full of lament, so we are in good company @Speakingtruth. Healing is not the same as justice though they may feel interwoven.
There are so many friends of mine, a few of them who are still congregation members, whose eyes are being opened. It is up to us to help our brothers and sisters who feel that something isn’t right at Brooklyn Tabernacle to trust their instincts. Their instincts are truly God’s Spirit in them.
Sometimes the story of what happened to us needs to be spoken. Sometimes to a trusted friend, sometimes to a professional, and sometimes to a lawyer. This is especially true for stories of abuse. I’m grateful for the resources that this site has provided. It helped me to know we are not alone.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I will be praying for your healing.
