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

Tattoos, The Trucker Life and a Better Jesus

Dave was a Christian, and Jesus was his best friend. Mine, too. Truly. But when we talked about Jesus, Dave’s thoughts were fuller and better than mine. We both used the same words to describe Jesus, but Dave’s interpretation was deeper and more complete. Dave’s understanding of God’s goodness was also better than I understood it.

What About Sin?

“What about sin?” she interrupted rather forcefully. I was sharing with about ten college students on the perfection of our Father’s love. She had started to get jittery when I began discussing how we are prone to love. I thought it was the coffee, but it wasn’t.

Papa Was A Minister
