End The Stigma With-In The Church

icuTalks
 

 

 

 

Last month I had the opportunity to speak at icuTalks on the topic of Ending Stigma in the Church.

I was incredibly honored and took all 26 of my 25 minutes to contrast the reconciling nature of God with the retributive lens through which much of the church perceives Him. If you’re curious about the new book I am finally wrapping up, Leaving & finding Jesus, this is a good introduction.

icuTalks creates a safe and vulnerable environment through an authentic sharing of God’s redeeming love of life. They are a mental health ministry that provides a stage for everyday people to share about God’s redemptive love. The theme for the evening was Ending the Stigma with-in the Church and I was honored to share the stage with Heather Bise and Cody Suddreth.

icuTalks is led by my friend, Kim Honeycutt, who is a psychotherapist and trauma recovery consultant. Kim provides individual services that are open to all seeking emotional healing. Kim was rated second in a “best list” of psychotherapists by Charlotte Fitness Lifestyles. You can learn more about them at www.icutalks.com

Remember how they were joined by a host of raging superhero death angels shouting “Glory in the highest,” and “On earth, as it is in heaven!” while they committed acts of retributive justice that would make Quinton Tarantino blush.

The Philosophy Professor

I met a philosophy professor the other day. Well, actually I see him a few times a week. He frequents the same coffee shop I do.

Perspective for the Sake of Relationship: Authors Note

In this book, I have not written about Gods sovereignty through a rigid systematic lens. I have written through the lens of relationship. I don’t approach God through disciplines, ethics and the dogma of religious thought; I approach God as an adored son of my Father, a beloved brother of Jesus, an intimate friend of Holy Spirit.

And it’s all about family.

Thank you, Father, for planting only good seed. Help us to tend the field in which you have placed us with your same wisdom and patience.

Sovereign Love / six-part teaching series

While many of us believe the sovereignty of God has something to do with control, Jesus revealed the true definition of the sovereignty of God in the power and authority of sacrificial Love…
