A lot of conversation occurs on Twitter. Some tweets are ridiculous, others are maddening!! I read about current happenings in Christianity, exchange conversation with survivors and advocates. Sometimes there are tweets that really need to be seen wider than the Twitterverse. I will be compiling tweets to highlight here.
This is a few months old, but Mark Driscoll sure has changed . . . .
Gretchen Baskerville is a friend of mine who has been leading divorce recovery groups for a couple of decades. She has done a ton of research on divorce and is a powerful voice on Twitter telling the truth about divorce in the context of harmful and abusive marriages.
She is also writing a book called Life-Saving Divorce. I love her voice, giving abused men and women “permission” to divorce their abusive spouses, and even going against the bad counsel of pastors who have no business telling abused spouses to remain married with their abusers. Go, Gretchen!
Ummmmmm, no, just NO!!!! Sin-leveling doesn’t look good on you, TT.
Another older tweet, but one that needed to be documented. I understand that women talk about estrogen, but usually it’s in the context of menopause. But check out Owen Strachan’s tweet on testosterone. This stuff is plain weird. A grown man tweeting this? Bizarre!!!
I love reading Chuck DeGroat’s tweets. Chuck is associate professor of pastoral care and counseling at Western Theological Seminary, Holland, Michigan. He gets trauma, spiritual abuse, and so many of the issues we deal with here. Look how he handled this sensitive situation on a recent trip:
