Ep. 156 : Trauma-Informed Theology (part 1) with Kimi & Joel Harris (most popular episode from the LW archives)

After launching the Living Wholehearted Podcast two years ago, the Mattsons are airing their first reruns. The Trauma-Informed Theology episodes from January 2021 were the most listened to podcasts of all time. It might seem odd, but the truth is, people are becoming more and more aware of how trauma is affecting all of who we are - even our understanding of God, the church, and our communities. Our guests on this episode help us dive into an important discussion; 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. Read More
