• Focuses on healing and reconciliation for congregations that have experienced physical, sexual, emotional, spiritual, and financial misconduct or betrayal by a leader • Explores the unintended consequences of “moving on” after misconduct without fully going through a process toward healing • Includes charts, checklists, and outlines to aid in the process of congregational healing In the wake of misconduct by trusted clergy and lay leaders, members of congregations find themselves adrift. Often there are deep divisions within the church and open, direct, honest communication ceases. Wholeness After Betrayal offers an understanding of these dynamics and a process to help members take the first steps toward reconciling relationships with one another. This specialized instruction is tested and proven, having been used effectively many times in a variety of congregational settings. It holds tremendous value for institutional healing, whether immediately following misconduct or even decades later.
