When your child feels let down by the church

13 November 2023

What happens when a child or teenager is let down by the church? When they suffer church hurt? Will they walk away from God forever - or is it possible to parent them for faith through this painful season?

For an episode of the Parenting for Faith podcast, Lucy spoke to Natalie Thomas Runion, author of Raised to Stay.

Natalie was a pastor’s daughter, then later a pastor herself. She has experienced first-hand how the church can be a hurtful place, but brings a message of hope and healing that, in Christ, forgiveness and spiritual growth are possible.
