Interview with pastor, friend, and volunteer at Hagar’s Voice, Angela Lam. Angela shares about Hagar’s Voice – an organization that supports women and other people who are victims of clergy sexual abuse – and how it came to be. She talks her own story of abuse, talks about how patterns in the greater Church lead to abuse, what we can do as Christians to prevent it, how to take action when a victim comes forward, and more. It is a conversation that is important for all Christians to hear with very practical steps to apply.
Also in this episode, the pastors share some talkback from a Sunday meeting from a first-time visitor. As always, Spiritual Show and Tell to end the episode: MXPX, Ignatian Contemplation: Imaginative Prayer, and camping in the woods.
