Book Reveals What Healing From Trauma Looks Like


The book, “Healing Traumatized Churches” is written for faith communities who have decided to heal, rather than bury, their pain from the trauma of leadership betrayal.  The choice to heal the pain, rather than to bury it, is a harder road.  But using compensatory adaptations to bury the community’s pain only makes the community limp more, dragging it down into further disability.
Prolonged use of compensatory adaptations to manage buried pain further deconstructs the wounded faith community into “the society of cranky, controlling, and numb.”  Consequently, the mission and very existence of the community are jeopardized.  Without a healing protocol, the community remains stuck in the awkward position of having one foot in the past, one foot in the future, and no one paying attention to the present, where The Healing Presence of God is experienced.
The author of “Healing Traumatized Churches,” Ronald H Wean, is a Pastor and Licensed Counselor. He presents a 4 Step Protocol for healing wounded faith communities in a readable format of readers’ theater so that the whole congregation can participate.  In this 3 Act Play, the 3 main characters discover the buried trauma of their faith community.  But they are surprised to discover their own buried trauma and compensatory adaptations.
The Good News is, with God’s healing presence, they begin to heal.  With renewed courage and new faith, they seek the One who transforms trauma into triumph, even the worst traumas, by changing wounds into blessings for the world.  Armed with their own gifts of personal trauma healing, they become “wounded healers” and return to their wounded church, armed with hope, purpose, and a new vision and focus of God the Healer.

“This book is dedicated to all those churches who have been wounded:  There is still hope for you.  You are only stuck, you shall not die.  There is a structure and a way to heal.  Don’t give up!”  - Ronald H. Wean
