Linda's note: I've been told that the writer is remarried and presently in a good church I am so grateful for all who have contributed their stories. If you have friends who have their own stories of divorce and the church, I hope you'll let them know about the possibility of contributing as guest blogger. Please see the information below.
I advocate for healing of divorced people within the church by gathering stories of Christians who chose divorce because of abuse, and the response of their churches to that decision. (I'm interested in both helpful and hurtful experiences.) I also include those who have divorced because of their spouse's infidelity but have nevertheless been blamed by their church for the divorce.
If you’re interested in having your voice heard by contributing your divorce story in relationship to the church, please email me at LindaMKurthBlog@gmail.com for guidelines. I’ll be happy to help you share your story.
Know that I encourage respectful comments, keeping the blog a safe place to dialog about this subject.
