Kicking off this week’s episode, on #Blessed Heather sits down Seth Day and talks about whether Christians should use anger as an online tool for engagement. Anger is one of the fastest emotions to go viral online, so when it is appropriate, and when is it pandering for reactions? Make sure to let us know your thoughts by typing in ViralJesusPod on Instagram or Twitter and using #Blessed.
As our pod-class journey on healing continues, (don’t forget to listen to previous episodes in the series) Heather sits down with author and trauma care specialist Sheila Wise Rowe. Sheila helps us understand what trauma is, what gaslighting is, and how we can recognize it, as well as some ways we can get unstuck.
Sheila Wise Rowe has a Master’s degree in counseling and is active in local and international healing and reconciliation ministry. Sheila has over twenty-five years of experience as a Christian counselor, spiritual director, educator, writer, and speaker. Sheila is the author of Healing Racial Trauma, and Young, Gifted, and Black.
Heather Thompson Day is an associate professor of communication at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan. She is the author of eight books, including I’ll See You Tomorrow, releasing in October, and It’s Not Your Turn. Reach out to Heather on Twitter @HeatherTDay and on Instagram @heatherthompsonday.
