Mental Health

Over the years the church has been great at digging a hole and burying our heads in the sand on many issues.  This summer in our church we have determined to reverse that trend and tackle issues that the church often ignores or shy’s away from.  One of those issues is Mental Health.

Where Is God in Mental Illness?

What the Bible says about psychology, psychiatry, madness, and insanity

“Until the day Jesus returns, I will live in a body which does not function as God originally intended. My brain, which is a key, central, integral part of my body, will not function correctly. Chemicals will become imbalanced. Serotonin will not be properly absorbed. Norepinephrine will be unevenly distributed. Synapses won’t fire correctly. My brain, just like every other part of my body, is prone to illness.”
(Stephen Altrogge)
