** Please take my Varieties of Church Experience Survey, and share with friends and family (especially more conservative ones!): ** One of my most popular guests, Mark Karris (episode 45: "Toxic Christianity" & Its Damaging Claims), returns to talk about his book Religious Refugees. Specifically, we talk through the five symptoms of what he calls Religious Disorientation Growth Syndrome, as well as 5 possible ways forward toward re-orientation. Mark's book: 5 Symptoms of Religious Disorientation Growth Syndrome: 1. Doubting or denying one’s religious beliefs that were once held as true. 2. Subtle or intense anxiety about a person’s relationship with God. 3. Increase of painful emotions, such as anger, loneliness, shame, guilt, sadness, and despair. 4. Isolation (community is massive for healing, meaning-making, and growth after trauma) and criticism (feared or realized) from members within their own family and/or religious community. 5. Existential angst concerning a person’s identity and future self The 5 Stations of Healing we spoke about: 1. Becoming aware of and using one’s emotions 2. An “unholy huddle” — the importance of a community 3. Listen and be mindful of our emotions and therefore our selves 4. Values 5.
