End The Stigma With-In The ChurchicuTalks
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
