This will be the first of 3 episodes dealing with clergy sexual abuse. In this episode Kristal Chalmers shares her story as it is recorded in her book "Broken and Beautiful". She recalls the "grooming" of a predatory pastor and the pain of walking through reporting it, its mishandling by those in authority and yet in the midst of it all God's care.
Kristial's parent Lloyd and Eileen Peters will also provide their perspective as Eileen has served as an abuse counsellor for years previous and Lloyd has served as a Pastor. They will share their hearts for victims, secondary victims and for the church to handle this seriously and with much wisdom over the next 2 episodes.
If you need help please feel free to reach out, and pray with me that the Lord would do his mighty work of shedding light on this darkness.
