Thank you for your honesty. This story was hard for me to read… I’m a Christian “invisible illness” advocate. Your story hammered home to me how much work still needs to be done, to address unhelpful attitudes and faulty theology regarding illness, healing and suffering.
I’m saddened to hear you felt the way you did at church. It angers me too… It’s stories like yours that fuel my own advocacy work. So thank you for being courageous enough to speak up.
