Reverend Al Dungan, a retired Lutheran pastor, shares his life-long journey of growing up in an alcoholic home and discovering late in life how that experience impacted and shaped his life.

Addiction takes many forms and knows no boundaries. Anyone is susceptible to this cunning baffling and powerful disease, even clergy. In fact, clergy are more susceptible than average because of the nature of their work. In this podcast you will hear the personal testimonies of clergy who were caught in the hell of addiction and by the grace of God found a way out. Listen to their powerful stories of what it was like while they were addiction, what happened that caused them to get free, and what it’s like now for them living in recovery.
