Forum on Spiritual Trauma
Over the last decade, the church has slowly awakened to the reality, impact, and devastation of trauma. However, there is one form of trauma that seems most elusive for the church to identify: spiritual trauma. But the difficulty in identifying it doesn’t change the painful experiences many Christians have endured under the guise of Christian leadership. If this topic brings up any feelings of shame, anxiety, grief, or confusion, we want you to know that you are not alone.
Here at Icon, we want to be a gracious, accommodating, and healing voice for those in our city who have endured such trauma. Because of that, we hosted a forum to unpack what spiritual trauma is, how to identify it in your own story, and how to begin the healing process.
