277: It’s Not Faithless to Doubt: Spiritual Formation & Faith Crisis: Katie Harmon McClaughlin

We shouldn’t be more worried about Faith Crisis than we are about our response to it.  A poor response to faith crisis can cause spiritual havoc and immense emotional damage.

From our LDS cousins (who have had their own institutional journey of deconstruction and reconstruction in the LDS Restoration movement) Community of Christ Spiritual Formation specialist Katie Harmon-McClaughlin discusses the important work of reconstruction and spiritual formation after a faith and belief deconstruction.

Katie discusses  Community of Christ’s pastoral approach that supports the process of questioning rather than makes a sin of doubt.  This is essential listening particularly for those in the LDS Tradition who are looking for a pastoral response that doesn’t make doubt a reason for exclusion or an issue of worthiness.

    Gina, I am a relative newcomer to your podcast, and I have found it at precisely the moment in my life when I need it. This episode in particular answers directly the questions I have been sitting with for the last six weeks. What leaves me in a state of awe is the ease and eloquence with which you converse with the people you “interview.” I feel as if I am eavesdropping to two friends who have known each other for years; the conversations have fluidity and density, and listening it both topical and simply exquisite. Thank you.
