A Guide for Pastors - protocols and Pastoral Care.

Maintaining The  Fellowship of believers

 "forsake not the gathering.."

  "we are all one in Christ"

"bear one another's burdens.


    lets listen to one another's stories  

 let's understand eachother by corecting false concepts and idears.


eg  survivors are  very likely to be hyper vigilant

      hurt people do not always hurt people
