35: A Pastor Says #MeToo

Google Podcasts

Trigger warning: Episode contains references to rape and sexual assault.  

The #MeToo movement isn’t just about the Harvey Weinsteins of the world. It’s also about Christians leaders in positions of power who wield  that power for evil. Pastor, author, and speaker Ruth Everhart survived an assault and dealt with an abusive senior pastor in her early days as an associate pastor. After decades of ministry, she helps us navigate power, the Bible, and justice in a way that will bring you freedom and strength.

And on The Jess & Devi Show, we talk about Tamar and Ammnon using The #MeToo Reckoning as our guide.
