Hi. It shows strength that you want to reconnect with your spirituality and a faith community after such a negative experience. I'm not sure if you are wanting to heal within a similar tradition, or are open to something very different. I just had a thought that if the Bible and church buildings trigger your phobia, then how about trying a tradition like Zen meditation practice that looks nothing like what you're used to? Or some kind of nature-based spirituality, a new age group.. something radically different.
