November 10, 2023

Join us as we delve into an urgent and essential conversation about the imperative need to create safe spaces within our churches for men and women of all ages with special guest, Mary DeMuth.

Mary shares her deeply personal journey as an abuse survivor, shedding light on the challenges that many face when dealing with the aftermath of abuse. She brings her wealth of experience and expertise to our discussion as we confront the stark reality of how churches often fall short in responding to the needs of abuse victims.

We tackle the tough issues head-on, examining the reasons why churches sometimes respond poorly to those who have experienced abuse and exploring the profound impact this has on victims and the broader faith community. We also discuss the critical elements that must be in place for a church to truly be a sanctuary for its members, fostering trust and healing in the wake of major denominations being exposed to the sin of sexual abuse.

This episode is a heartfelt exploration of a topic that has shaken the foundations of many religious organizations and raised critical questions about accountability, transparency, and the well-being of all members.
