What is Once a Week?

Greetings! My name is Aaron Hann. Once A Week contains two newsletters with a simple format: a brief(ish) reflection; a relevant quotation; recommended resources; a question for your consideration; and sent to you at the frequency of a counseling session on every Tuesday.

Theology & Therapy is where I write about pretty much anything that is currently on my mind. As a Christian therapist, that usually means topics related to soul care, biblical reflections, theology, and psychology. My hope for Theology & Therapy is to encourage, comfort, challenge, and make you think.

Thesis 96 explores spiritual abuse, church renewal and reform, and advocating for those who have been harmed by Christian leaders and communities. This newsletter has two aims: first, offering hope and comfort to those recovering from spiritual abuse; and second, equiping Christians with biblical and theological resources to better defend and protect the sheep. My hope is that Thesis 96 will help Christians be theologians, as I put it in my 12th thesis: “Martin Luther wrote that a theologian is one who says what a thing is; when a sheep sees a shepherd acting like a wolf and says so, she is being a theologian.”
