Recovering from Un-Natural Disasters:
A Guide for Pastors and Congregations After Violence and Trauma
As news stories about gun violence, suicides, and sexual abuse become far too common, it's important for pastors and church leaders to learn how to handle un-natural disasters that could or perhaps already have occurred within their community.
In this book, readers will explore the four phases of a human-caused disaster -- Devastation and Heroism, Disillusionment, Reforming, and Wisdom. Step-by-step suggestions on how to handle an un-natural disaster from the minute it occurs are included, along with sample worship resources, such as prayers and music and sermon suggestions that are appropriate to use during periods of trauma and recovery.
Recovering from Un-Natural Disasters is a must-read handbook for pastors and church leaders of communities who could or perhaps already have experienced an un-natural disaster, such as gun violence, suicides, or sexual abuse.
