Ally,

You wrote:

"I was voted out of a 31-year church membership (my name put up on a big screen, followed by the words: CONDUCT UNBECOMING A CHILD OF GOD...beause I got a divorce after 31 years of abuse.

If you read my thread: I Bet You Never Heard a Story Like this, you can read what happened."

Absolutely heartbreaking! Few things hurt worse than to be "crucified" by fellow believers...

Something eerily similar happened to me (what? is there a script these folks follow or something?). I, too, suffered at the hands of those I was in fellowship with. And the journey of healing has been almost as painful as the original offense...!

I was recently led to a book that I, in turn, recommend to you: Gene Edwards wrote it (fabulous, gifted author, who writes in almost parable form): "Exquisite Agony": When Christians Hurt Other Christians.

It's NOT anything you'd expect... but it's about seeing the trauma through God's perspective -- necessary, I've come to believe, for true healing.

May you be blessed...

Shalom, Dena
