Impaired or Empowered? Trauma in the Lives of Christian Workers
This is a downloadable resource.Add to cart
Pain, disillusionment, and secondary trauma stress can accumulate in ministry work that requires sustained proximity to human suffering and the many evils done under the sun. Any workplace can also bring suffering: conflict, job loss, or even profound mistreatment, all intensified when they occur in a ministry context of trust. This session offers a Christian framework for traumatic suffering and impairment and recommends proactive and reactive help. The goal is to offer a vision of thriving ministry, supported by connection to God and others and by life rhythms that recognize the goodness of creational limits.
