Becoming part of a church community can be difficult and triggering. Church abuse and other negative experiences can leave us feeling like we don't belong. Ericka Andersen discusses the process of healing from traumatic church experiences and how to find a community where you belong. She discusses the importance of both pulling away from a hurtful situation to process pain and later re-engaging in spiritual community, and offers guidance in how to find people you can be safe and vulnerable with.
