When being a Christian becomes a burden-
Spiritual Abuse Education
"Abuse is when someone else tells you who you are and how to behave..."
Church Conflict or Spiritual Abuse?

The Christian community as a group - the desire to belong. About group membership, group dynamics and group conflicts. You and the group. "To fit in is not to belong. Belonging is being welcomed just as you are." Hello, beloved child of God. We all want to belong. It is a basic human need that we can be part of a community, that we can be in social exchange with others. Humans are social, relational creatures, and we atrophy without a sense of community-feeling lonely and isolated. Groups, of whatever kind, provide us with this basis of a community.
