Last week Pastor Kathy shared why it is important to talk about mental health in church. She mentioned that having a mental health diagnosis does not mean you are less of a person. In fact, all of us have gifts to share. All of us are affected by mental health issues. Each of us struggle, in our own ways. We all have our place in God’s community. We belong. And we need to remove the struggle of talking about mental health together.
This week we will talk about tools from our faith tradition that can help us as we struggle with mental health challenges. We will also interview Advocate BroMenn Therapist Jody Poultney and ask her about depression, anxiety and what the church can do to help with mental health issues.
We will also have some music that I think you will find especially meaningful.
Come to receive support and insights. Come to offer support to others. Come to worship God.
I look forward to worshiping with you.
