Rev. Sherrie James...
Writing and Educating about
Christianity and the Paranormal
and assisting those in
Rev. Sherrie James' understanding of Christianity and the paranormal in modernity, her education level, her numerous paranormal experiences, the additional ordination vows she took agreeing to act as an exorcist and healer, and her devotion to helping those in paranormal and spiritual need combine to establish her as a leading religious and Christian authority on spiritual, metaphysical and paranormal matters.
Though Rev. Sherrie James is very faithful to her traditional Christian roots, she also is capable of understanding and discussing intelligently and without judgment the complex moral, ethical and metaphysical relationship between Christianity, modern society, and the paranormal. Sherrie feels that one aspect of her ministry is to help educate members of the Christian and the paranormal communities on how to better understand the honest and modern realities of each other. As another aspect of her general pastoral calling, Rev. Sherrie directly assists those that are experiencing extremely challenging paranormal or demonic hauntings and provides a safe place for people who have experienced paranormal events to process and discuss how those experiences impact their normal and spiritual lives.
Rev. Sherrie James often attempts to stand in the gap and to act as a bridge and a resource when needed between the paranormal and traditional Christian communities. As a gentle and
nonjudgmental witness of Christ's love to the global paranormal community, Rev. Sherrie recognizes that many involved in the paranormal and beyond have been hurt or disillusioned by organized religion and yet remain very spiritual individuals. She also knows that sometimes Christians involved in the paranormal -- by intention or by default -- as paranormal investigators or as innocent victims or witnesses that have involuntarily experienced paranormal events are often reluctant to speak with their own pastors and churches about this topic for fear of being ridiculed or being ostracized. Sherrie is willing to help anyone in need.
Rev. Sherrie believes that God sometimes calls and prepares ministers to work with specific groups of people, such as with youth, with those who are terminally ill, or with the homeless. As one aspect of her general pastoral ministry, Sherrie feels that God has prepared her for this particular ministry and calling to help educate the paranormal and religious
communities and to help those in paranormal crisis or peril. As a part of being faithful to that calling, Sherrie took additional vows during her ordination service agreeing to act as an exorcist and healer as needed. This makes her one of the few Christian clergy within a mainline Protestant denomination to ever have taken such formal vows.
Rev. Sherrie also acts as a respectful educator of other Christians, members of the paranormal community, and fellow paranormal investigators about the practical aspect of dealing with hauntings, ghosts, negative entities, and demons. She provides education at conferences and through media outlets, shares investigation techniques with or assists paranormal teams, and offers warnings about the potential dangers involved in provoking deliberate paranormal interactions and opening spiritual doorways. Believing that our youth deserve honest answers and the opportunity to openly discuss their questions about the paranormal, Rev. Sherrie does youth-oriented presentations as well. As noted, Sherrie acts as a paranormal crisis intervention specialist assisting or intervening in challenging paranormal situations when needed and also can conduct Christian home blessings, cleansings or location exorcisms.
Recognizing how challenging it can be for pastors to discuss their own questions about the paranormal in safety and to get accurate information about this often controversial topic, Rev. Sherrie also provides educational seminars and free confidential consultations to clergy about the following: the paranormal and Christianity in today's world; what questions to ask and how to answer when someone comes to the pastor for help about a paranormal issue; practical ways to help deal with possible hauntings; and about discernment, cleansings, deliverance ministry, and exorcisms. She discusses how to best answer religious and paranormal questions posed by parishioners and others seeking help based on current scientific understandings as well as from sound biblical teachings about the paranormal.
