Coming back to ‘The Wall': building resilience by learning to trust

Chaplain Chris Haughee ·
Recently, we did an object lesson as part of our Resilience-based series that I call “the Wall.” We talked about how bad things happen in this world despite having a loving God that looks over us. We make bad choices at times that hurt us, and others make bad choices that hurt us. In general, there is a lot of brokenness in relationships that causes a lot of damage. So, I told the children, we learn how to protect ourselves. Just like castles have BIG walls or our cottages on campus have...

From suffering to triumph... learning through adversity during Lent

Chaplain Chris Haughee ·
My approach to my own personal adversity and trauma has been deeply shaped by my spirituality. I grew up in a liturgical church, which means that we kept to something called the "Church calendar" which had seasons built into it for various readings, celebrations and observances. Every late winter brought with it the experience of "Ash Wednesday" that led into Lent, a time of self-examination, observance of disciplines and practices that framed human suffering into a larger context, a grand...

A friend, who graduated from NTID (National Technical Institute for the Deaf), who had told me of some of her ACEs (both her parents were deaf, ...). I'd had a 'mentor' who was on the faculty there, and I suspect both of them, and many others will appreciate this.

Chaplain Chris Haughee ·
Does thinking about Advent planning already just stress you out? Concerned that as a trauma-informed congregation that whatever "pre-packaged materials" you might get haven't been appropriately vetted and will require you to add yet another "to-do" to an already full to-do list? If thinking about preparing for Advent already has you stressed out, don’t fear… Chaplain Sami Pack-Toner and Rev. Chris Haughee are here to help! Materials created in a trauma-sensitive setting and for...

Helpful resource... a "checklist" for trauma-sensitive worshipping communities

Chaplain Chris Haughee ·
I am a practical person... and in ministry I am one of those that asks questions like, "Can you give me some examples?" and "How would that look in MY ministry setting?" While theoretical knowledge is helpful, and ACEs science is amazing and interesting in its own right, trauma-informed/trauma-sensitive ministry must actually APPLY that knowledge in order to help anyone. So, as my colleague Rev. Sami Pack-Toner (chaplain, Intermountain Residential ) and I prepared for the Mountain Sky...
