ABOUT THIS EPISODE: Heather met Sydney through Twitter (X? Are we calling it X now?) after seeing some of Sydney’s spicy takes about church leadership go viral. Sydney experienced first-hand what it is like to be groomed by an adult in the church, and has used her online platform to call out church abuse. Today we talk about some signs of grooming in the church.
If you do not have a child protection policy, it is important to get one. For more information on signs of abuse and how to report, go to https://www.rainn.org/
