A New Podcast Helping Churches Talk About & Tackle the issue of P0rnography
This month Naked Truth project launch the PWORD podcast, offering an in-depth, comprehensive and best of all free resource for churches. Packed with expert and proven advice for leaders, this podcast includes contributions from Christian practitioners, thinkers and specialists leading the way in the sex and porn addiction, betrayal trauma and recovery.
The PWORD Conference
For several years Naked Truth Project has been delivering awareness and training for churches primarily through a day conference we call the “PWORD CONFERENCE”. This event has been hosted in London, Cardiff, Belfast, Glasgow, Nottingham, Cumbria and Durham and in 2021 was streamed live with over 30 international and world-leading experts contributing. We have taken some of the key moments and best bits from those events, adding some of our team’s conversation and commentary and are excited to announce the launch of a brand new podcast for church leaders called the PWORD PODCAST
Introducing the PWORD podcast
Join our CEO and founder Ian Henderson and our Director of Recovery, Cat Etherington as they discuss and unpack topics vital for churches to consider and play curated extracts from some of the PWORD conference talks and sessions.
In the first episode in the series, Ian and Cat play and discuss extracts from leading experts Dan Drake, Dr Jake Porter and Dr Paula Hall and explore how the church’s response to porn use and addiction can be shaped by both theological and scientific thinking.
The PWORD podcast is available on spotify, apple podcasts or you can listen here.
