This is a training manual for pastor of congregations that are stuck in their history. This manual provides both rationale and a Bible study the pastor can use to lead the congregation through the process of healing from its history. This training manual also discusses moral injury, both individual and corporate. Moral injury can occur when an individual does something against his or her moral code or fails to do something that is in line with his or her moral code. Moral injury can also occur when a member of the congregation experiences the moral failure of a leader of the congregation. Corporate moral injury can occur when a number of members of the congregation experience the moral injury from the same moral failure at around the same time. The best recovery method from moral injury is when a benevolent moral authority leads the morally injured person through a process of forgiveness (particularly self-forgiveness) to a discipled lifestyle. For the local congregation, the benevolent moral authority is the pastor. This book is written for the pastor, or the leader of the local congregation.

About the Author:

Dr. Joseph L. Lynch is a Director of Religious Education at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York. Formerly, for 14 plus years he was the pastor of Sheridan Avenue United Methodist Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He holds a Doctor of Ministry degree from Fuller Theological Seminary, a Master of Divinity degree from Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University, a Master of Business Administration degree from Oklahoma City University, a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from San Diego State University and an Associate of Science in Electronic Communications Technology degree from San Diego Community College. Additionally, he has taken several clinical and organizational graduate psychology courses at the University of Tulsa and three clinical pastoral education courses at the Veterans Administration hospital in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Dr. Lynch has authored over 600 articles that have appeared in various religious and secular media. Dr. Lynch is an instructor for Indiana Wesleyan University, Oklahoma Wesleyan University. As a former associate pastor and senior pastor, Dr. Lynch has learned first-hand how past conflicts affect the present mindset of a congregation. Additionally, as one of the many volunteers in the aftermath of the Oklahoma City bombing, a short-term missionary to conflicted countries such as Bosnia, and an U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam War, he has witnessed and experienced the consequences of conflicts taken to the extreme. Through Dr. Lynch’s research for his doctor of ministry degree at Fuller Theological Seminary, as well as his experiences and research in the local congregation and the small business settings, he has discovered an area that is overlooked in a congregation’s recovery of its past—that of healing from its past. Concerned that all too often new programs are substituted for the healing work of the Holy Spirit within the congregation, he has developed this training manual as a way for the pastor and the local congregation to focus on the healing and reconciliation necessary for a congregation to move forward. Dr. Lynch believes this training manual provides the way for pastors to be guided and to guide their congregations out of hurts they have experienced in their pasts. He has prepared it with the hope that its application will be useful to pastors and their congregations as the Holy Spirit leads them out of their conflicted situations and into healing and reconciliation from their pasts.
