Jagged Edges: Piecing Together the Brokenness in Our Lives
Walking, Leaping and Praising God (9 AM)
Today, guest preacher, Lea Nygaard, continues our sermon series related to mental health. Her area of focus: eating disorders.
One in every five U.S. adults experiences mental illness each year. Mental health is a subject of great importance yet is too often brushed under the rug by society, family, friends and the Church. This January, we will consider topics such as loneliness, grief, eating disorders and suicide. We’ll examine stories from the Bible related to mental health and develop a mental health tool kit for personal use. Jesus calls us to be a neighbor to all. Join us as we ponder how we might proactively begin the New Year with a greater awareness of and compassion for those affected by mental health challenges.
