Ep. 62 : Trauma-informed Theology Part 1 with Joel & Kimberly Harris

Our guests are helping us dive into an important topic of how do we help sex abuse survivors, as well as prevent more abuse in the church. This is never an easy topic, but a vital one we are passionate about and think it’s a key to shrinking all our integrity gaps. Today we have Joel and Kimberly Harris who are transplants from Portland, Oregon to South Dakota, where Joel is a pastor and worship leader. They have three girls, whom they homeschool. As a family, they value the power of music and storytelling and love to share good books with each other. Kimberly has written for various publications, including Christianity Today and Crosswalk, covering topics such as how abusers groom churches, biblical comfort in suffering, and empathy. Through their own story of abuse and seeing the unraveling of larger systemic wreckage, they still love God and the Church. They are helping survivors find their voice and want to see more leaders (who may also be abuse survivors) learn how to respond in helpful and healing ways. Whether you are a parent, ministry leader, or leader, please listen in. You can find Kimi on Instagram and on her website and Joel on twitter  Read More
