For the past decade or so, I've been struggling to understand and move on from several conflicts that I've had in church. It's been tough trying to find others who've gone through similar experiences who would be able to empathize and understand. A few years ago, when I attended an Episcopal Church, I inquired if there was any group that I could attend for people struggling to overcome painful church conflicts, but they didn't have any. I recently met some people in Facebook who have had some painful church conflicts and I learned about a new term: Post-Traumatic Church Syndrome.

One of Jesus's greatest imperatives to his followers was for them to care for the poor and to feed the hungry.

I don’t watch TV news much. I can’t remember when I gave it up. I know there was a time when I stayed glued to the evening news to find out what was going on around the world and here at home. I watched local news, and at times, appeared on it when a reporter needed to interview someone on some issue that I knew a little about.

Then I began to see a shift in the kind of news TV broadcasters were covering. It became a scandal-spiced race to see who could get the most jabs in at the most people, usually politicians or entertainers, one and the same in some people’s minds. Forget any analysis. If Pres. Bush said we had to go to war against Iraq because of 9/11, then go to war we would, with news anchors trumpeting the lies coming out of Washington, D.C. If two kids named Justin or Miley get in trouble or reveal too much skin in their acts, those events were covered with the same intensity as the civil war in Syria or the Boston Marathon bombing.
