Set Your Course: Daily Lessons into Spirituality

Oct 18, 2017

Day 2
Step One Continued
We recognize that we have been hurt, disappointed or abused by religion or the religious.

Instruction: Recognize the damage

Today’s Assignment is to try to recognize the damage. Are you feeling shame, guilt, depression, despair, worthlessness, incapable of giving or receiving love, unable to forgive, or unworthy of forgiveness? Do you find ways to punish yourself and to self-destruct? Connecting these feelings to your mental, physical and spiritual health is not a stretch of the imagination. How has religious abuse held you back from being the happy, peaceful, balanced individual that you are capable of being - the person you were meant to be?

About Religious Recovery
The goal of Religious Recovery is to reach out to those in need of healing from religious organizations or religious individuals. We accomplish this through the proven success of the 12-step platform. Although our program is not affiliated with any 12-step organization, our program of self-help in a non-threatening environment is loosely based on their ideas and concepts. We do not promote or denounce any religion, and we are not a religious organization.

More information about Religious Recovery, including how to join a recovery group, can be found on the web at You can also email director Wayne Holmes at
