It’s been one year since Tim and Bill became the hosts of the Recovering from Religion podcast. For this anniversary, the guys look back on the past year. They talk about how the podcast came to be, what they were doing prior to the hosting responsibilities, and some of what they continue do in addition to the podcast. Tim asks Bill about his new novel, and reads a powerful letter from a Mom who was touched by the book, and shared her moving, first-hand story about the harm that comes from extreme religious messages.. This episode is an intimate one-on-one conversation as the hosts share what surprised them, and how they’ve been impacted by the shows, the topics and the guests. And at the end, there’s an announcement about the immediate future of the podcast.

Ronna Russell grew up the youngest daughter of a well-known United Pentecostal minister. To escape home, she jumped into marriage at the age of twenty-three, a union that lasted 22 years and produced four children. When her marriage ended, Ronna was free to consider her own desires and interests. With her children grown, she relocated, remarried and returned to school. Ronna is a blogger, an outspoken advocate for women, and the author of the book “The Uncomfortable Confessions of a Preacher’s Kid” that chronicles her experiences with a controlling, oppressive religious father, a closeted homosexual husband, and her own search for genuine authenticity.

Janice was born and raised in a charismatic Christian home, attending Pentecostal, Vineyard, and other evangelical churches before eventually marrying a pastor. She gravitated to the ultra-conservative side of her theology, wearing a head covering, insisting on homeschooling her children, and rejecting any vestiges of secular life. (e.g., TV, radio, music, newspapers, magazines, etc.) Then, in her 40s, she began having doubts about her faith. As the questions grew, her marriage unraveled. To rebuild her life, Janice went back to school to earn her Diploma of Applied Psychology and Counseling. Janice has taken her own experiences and developed the Divorcing Religion Workshop to provide tools for others with their journey out of fundamentalist religion.

 Dave Warnock was an Evangelical pastor and church leader for more than 40 years. He gradually moved away from Christianity, which came at a huge personal cost, including the breakup of his marriage, being shunned by two of his children, missing out on his grandchildren, and the loss of his entire community of friends.  Earlier this year, Dave was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), and told he had three to five years to live. Suddenly, with the awareness that life is incredibly brief, his life became infinitely more precious. Instead of succumbing to the depression, anger, and hopelessness, he decided to begin living life to the fullest. In this poignant and often funny episode, Dave talks about what it means to be “Dying Out Loud.”  Dave’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/DaveWarnock.DyingOutLoud/ More about Recovering from Religion Did you know Recovering from Religion has local support groups? https://www.meetup.com/pro/recovering-from-religion/#groups Looking for a therapist who will respect your views? https://www.seculartherapy.org/ Interested in meeting other people who have made the journey to recovery?
