Overcoming Childhood Neglect and Abuse

If you suffered some type of abuse as a child, chances are those wounds still need God’s healing touch. In this dynamic presentation, Pastor Sy Rogers explains how he finally recognized he must forgive his father, who abandoned him in the aftermath of his mother’s tragic death. He also explains how the Lord helped him forgive a man who sexually molested him during that time, which made Sy question his sexual orientation and even his gender for many many years. In spite of these devastating wounds, Sy found healing through Jesus Christ and was able to minister to others with similar challenges.
