Stepping through the Door - Again
Sat 2:00pm - 2:50pm
Venue: Convo 10
This session is a discussion on taking the risk of returning to church after being rejected by organized religion. For those who describe themselves as 'spiritual but not religious' selecting a new church home is a risk and can be re-traumatize those who've already suffered. We'll discuss how to approach finding and assessing a new church, finding like-minded individuals in your religious community, and keeping yourself protected while making the decision to try and re-engage in organized religion. While this is session is aimed at those who've separated from church, those who've returned to church are encouraged to come and share their stories, and leaders of churches are encouraged to come and learn what they can do to make returning to church possible for the marginalized and rejected.
