Church culture is abusive. Often it’s not intentionally abusive but generationally abusive. Alex sits down with us again to talk about his deconstruction, and we engage our new reconstruction.
When you leave anything that you’ve given yourself to for any significant amount of time, it’s hard. When you realize that all your relationships surrounded that thing, it’s harder.
Brenden shares the difficulty of leaving a long-term community. What it was like for his marriage and his kids, and how they found new community organically...
Brendan is a producer of the show, who knew me before church hierarchy and becoming a pastor. We’ve reconnected through the solidarity of leaving religion and have found common ground in working through our wounds with therapists to heal our lives, marriages, relationships, and so much more. Brendan's experiences, stories, and lessons he's learned will be helpful to every listener.
