Episode 419: Dr. Diane Langberg on Spiritual Abuse, Identifying Our Own Power, and Hope

Released October 17, 2022 by That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs


What a true honor to have Dr. Diane Langberg on the show today. Her book, Redeeming Power: Understanding Authority and Abuse in the Church, has taught me so much about trauma, abuse, and power. In this conversation, Dr. Langberg teaches us about paying attention to our own power, misusing that power, and balancing love for our local church with accountability.
If abuse is a part of your story, I would encourage you to listen with someone who loves you. This conversation may be tender to you, so I wanted you to know before you listened so you could care for yourself and your heart well. And, for our #miniBFFs, this show may be a bit much for their little ears.
