“Through the characters of his play, Ron creatively
invites us into the discussion and dialog so that our individual and community
God-given healing may continue. How refreshing it is!”
-Rev. Larry
R. Welin, D.Min.,
“I began reading “Healing Traumatized Churches”
critically. However, I quickly was drawn in to the book’s message of hope and
restoration. It should be no surprise that dominant culture narcissism has
groomed rogue church leaders vying for power and control, destroying the fiber
of many congregations. Their paths are littered with broken lives and lost
faith, a silent epidemic. But the Good News is that Jesus is still the rightful
owner and authority of the Body of Christ. With Ron’s skills as a counselor, a
heart of a pastor, and personal experience, the symptoms of church trauma and
post trauma are exposed and healing plans identified. I read the entire book in
one setting because, as a lay leader, I have experienced the effects of church
trauma personally. Thanks to this book, I am beginning to experience closure.”
- Colonel Howard (Bud) May USAF, retired
In praise of Healing Traumatized Churches: “Ron Wean
gives us a wonderful window through which to look at trauma. The use of a
dramatic script will surely allow others to look through the window and be
astonished, as I was, that the window becomes a mirror. Rev. Wean provides a
way into - and through - our own buried traumas.”
-Rev. Steven A. Ingram, D.Min.,
LPCC, Pastoral Counselor
