Sometimes we can feel like the walking wounded in the church. Some people will jump from church to church trying to forget their wounds. Others will leave the church altogether. The injuries we incur in these close quarters can follow us around for a lifetime if we let them.

In this episode, Catherine talks about the wounds that can happen when we walk closely with other believers in the church. She also reveals the central role that the church plays in our lives as believers and in the world, because knowing that divine design helps us to stay planted when we are tempted to leave.

Then Catherine offers FOUR STEPS you can take when you or your kids have been wounded in the church.

When we realize how important the church is for our individual purpose in life, we can make sense of why we get wounded there. The answer isn’t remaining a Christian casualty. The answer is finding healing through God in the church.
