Mental Health & the Gospel Pt. 1
WEEKLY: Cases of anxiety and depression are rising in the U.S. Most of us have encountered it personally or through someone we know. What does Jesus offer to those of us who suffer this side of eternity with issues of mental health?
Additionally, mental health can be a difficult topic for the Christians to deal with, but we have often stepped into territory that is not our expertise. It would be a huge disservice to leave Jesus out of the equation. He is called the Great Physician and our Wonderful Counselor!
How do we engage such a sensitive topic from a spiritual/biblical angle without doing damage along the way?
Join us as we take two Sundays to talk about this from two perspectives - clinical and spiritual. If you struggle with anxiety or depression, you are not alone, and the scriptures are not silent. We hope to see you over the next couple weeks as we tackle this difficult topic!
READ: Psalm 88
How can we nurture and strengthen Spiritual Health?
Do you believe there is a connection between one’s spiritual health and their mental health?
Do you believe mental illness is the direct result of a person’s sin?
Do you feel your church is adequately and appropriately able to manage your spiritual and mental health needs?
Romans 12:2 says, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Many people believe that anxiety and depression is a weakness of faith. Do you believe some mental illnesses can be improved by prayer and faith alone? Do you feel medication has a place in the healing of some mental illnesses?
