78: Quit Living with Shame
This week it is time to quite living with shame and guilt and start living with grace. Everyone meet Dr. Terrlyn L. Curry Avery. Dr. Curry Avery is the creator of pastology, the cutting-edge field that focuses on the synergy between pastoring and psychology. In her work both as an ordained minister and as a licensed psychologist, Dr. Curry Avery observed that although religion is a healing balm for some, often it is an instrument of wounding for others. These wounds range from rejecting all connections with the Sacred to self-hatred to remaining in abusive relationships to refusing medical intervention to a belief that only MY religion is the “right” religion. Her forward-thinking junction of two complementary fields was the impetus from which she launched her movement of healing religious wounds. Dr. CUrry Avery is Alena’s guest this week and together they are going to help you start enjoying the journey.
