Survivors' Faith Journeys: A Nomadic Spirituality of Home (2016) - RECORDED

— Categories:

“Spiritual homelessness” names the internal displacement that many abuse survivors experience. Survivors who turn to their religious traditions for support and healing often come to realize that the dominant metaphors and images of God, the languages of sin, and the explanations of suffering no longer fit. Refusing to accept the ideas that suffering is redemptive or is the will of God may be misunderstood by the faith community as rebellious or resistant. So survivors look elsewhere. They search. Reclaiming profound practices such as pilgrimage, and the metaphors of pilgrimage, offer a way to understand a survivor’s nomadic spiritual journey as a quest for a spiritual home after trauma, and a way to explore how God makes her home within us.
